Cargo transportation is one of the most important topics in today's fast growing and globalized logistics sector. Ecommerce activities make valuable contributions to cargo and logistics sectors. In this study, technological transfer center of a cargo company in Turkey that consists of infeeds, outfeeds, reject line and a sorter system was considered. The main problem is the imbalance between the expected capacity and current capacity. Simulation technique was applied for analyzing the system, and also for comparing the three proposed alternative solutions.
