PT. XYZ is a logistics service company located in Batam. The problems that occur at this time are the problem of overcrowding in the warehouse and wrong sorting. The purpose of this study is to identify how the proposed efficiency improvement in the distribution system of goods using the crossdocking method. The method that will be used in this research is the crossdocking method. Crossdocking is eliminating the storage process in the warehouse, so it can save time and money. The crossdocking distribution system does not have continuous storage of goods, because its function is only a transit point for a shipment of goods. Goods are not stored for a long time, so that the flow of goods is received until they are sent back, which is about 2-3 hours, or a maximum of 12 hours, in the warehouse there are no available shelves, or zero inventory. Based on the research, the results of data processing and discussion are very profitable, namely efficiency for zero inventory. Shows that if the company adds 1 sorting table to 6 sorting tables with a result of 90,000kg, once loading and unloading aircraft is ±77,000kg, this can be shown to be 90,000kg>77,000kg efficiency is generated because the output of the sorting table is greater than the incoming input so that there are no goods stored in the warehouse and increase the number of trucks by 10 units, then the delivery of goods can be done one way and no goods are stored in the warehouse. The results of the analysis can be said that the application of crossdocking in the company gains efficiency in the distribution of goods to expedition partners.
