The newspaper production/distribution problem (NDP)
involves a perishable good. Newspaper publishers
cannot print the news sections of newspapers in
advance, as they must be up to date. Additionally,
delivery must be completed before morning commuting
starts in metropolitan areas. Therefore, delivery delays
at the printing plant are not acceptable, as they cause
significant disturbances to the distribution chain. In this
paper, we analyse the impact of using a second
transelevator on the performance of a printing plant’s
automatic warehouse with the aim to avoid delivery
delays to the printing press.
