What is cross docking?
Cross docking is a logistics service where a company is transferring goods from one mode or means of transportation to another. There may be little to no storage or handling of the goods. Goods are received at a cross docking warehouse where they are unloaded and staged on the dock floor. At time the time of unload, some goods require palletization or additional handling to prepare them for final delivery.
Once all the goods are unloaded, the freight is organized by the staff. Freight is separated based on how it will ship out. While organizing the pallets of product, additional value added services may happen to finalize goods, such as light assembly. Finally, the outbound truck(s) arrives, so the staff can load product on a truck taking it to its final destination.
As a result, this process is undoubtedly great for moving many items efficiently and quickly. It is especially good for breaking down large product loads into smaller loads to create an easier or more efficient delivery process to the customer.
