What is Cross-Docking?

Cross-docking also known as “Transloading” is the method of bringing in and loading incoming freight directly onto outbound vehicles, with little or no storage between them. Cross-docking is typically used to combine shipments arriving in trucks or containers with the same or similar destinations from different sources.

Cross-docking maximizes the supply chain productivity of our customers by speeding up the delivery of products to their respective needs

Through using cross-docking services, a business can reduce the cost of inventory storage, reduce the risk to the product through limiting handling and increasing market speed.
