Studi Simulasi Sistem Pada Perusahaan Jasa Pengiriman Barang dan Ekspedisi
Currently, the competition of delivery service providers is increasing. Companies must strive to improve customer service and satisfaction to survive in this competition. One of the service improvements relates to the queuing system. This research was conducted at the counter of a logistics company, which provides delivery and expedition services, located in Cikarang, Bekasi. There was often a build-up of queues at counters and accumulated goods to be packaged. As a result, officers have very high utilization, because they should serve the customers; meanwhile, they also have to do packing works. This study uses a simulation approach to analyse and improve the performance of the current queuing system. Simulations are carried out using Promodel in the delivery handling system, namely starting when the customer enters the store, handling customer needs (including in the case of packing the goods until the service is complete and the customer leaves the store. There are two suggestions for improvement; short-term and medium-term improvement proposals for the short-term focus on customer service (excluding packaging), namely by providing registration forms and also preparing a refund that can shorten the service process. Meanwhile, the long-term improvement is to strengthen the service system with an additional information system, standardization of processes and costs, as well as extra officers who specialize in packing. The simulation results show that short and medium-term improvement can reduce waiting time and utilization, and increase the number of goods packed.
