Abstract

The paper focuses on the receiving area of a logistics platform operating in the agri-food sector. The main aim of this work is to propose a “what to” approach for the resolution of problems related to the vehicles and goods receiving. The approach is based on a dynamic, stochastic, discrete-event micro-simulation model, which was properly specified and calibrated.The work proposes the formulation of the mathematical model defining the receiving activities in the logistics platform. The aim of the objective function is to minimize the average trucks turnaround in accordance with constraints allowing to establish the optimal entry sequence of the inbound trucks. The problem formulation considers the introduction of ITS to support the receiving activities management
