Abstract:This research is conducted at Hamifleurs. Over the years space is added to the logistical areas. Therefore, the amount of receiving points is increased. This results in an inefficient flow. The research question according to this flow is: ‘How to create a more efficient flow at the receiving points, which takes the corresponding logistical costs into account while maintaining the quality control of the flowers?’. With help of a simulation model, several interventions are tested. According to the results of these interventions an efficient flow can be created when one of the new situations is used. The downside is the increased lead times of the trolleys in both new situations, but these lead times are chosen by the logistics manager and therefore accepted. Depending on the labor costs, using the current location will be a better fit.
