This internship is focused on the distribution centre that is one of several components of logistics management systems. The distribution centre is a utility infrastructure that can decrease the inventory cost, handy for loading and unloading goods, and makes high use of utility of vehicle capacity.
The distribution centre which supplies and delivers the goods to retailing stores, where consumable goods demand is high and the frequency is almost 24 hours a day are subjected to use cross-docking concept to manage distribution, transportation and retail. Cross-docking is used to consolidate goods from several suppliers and sort them to outbound shipments to different retailer stores to achieve economies of scale and environmental issues. I had visited the logistics distribution centre to discuss about these issues and other relevant research issues about the logistics management systems.
I had the opportunity to discuss with expert persons to get query clearly about distribution centre systems related with my research. A significant milestone in this internship was the establishment of common research interest about logistics stakeholders.
