Cross-Docking

The speed and productivity of a supply chain has become an important aspect for many companies. Cross-docking is a method that can help give your company a competitive advantage.

Cross-docking is the process where products from a supplier or manufacturer are distributed directly to a customer, retail chain, or end-user with minimal handling or storage time. This is a simple procedure whereby inbound volume of trailers, containers, pallets, or packages are received into a distribution facility and immediately sorted and segregated into outbound trailers, containers, trucks, or vans for last-mile delivery to the final consignee.  

Cross-docking can offer many benefits:

  • Reduce storage costs
  • Reduce distribution costs
  • Reduce risk of damage to products
  • Increase efficiency
  • Increase velocity of product during life-cycle of an order or shipment
  • Reduce time-to-market
  • Reduce transit times
