Cross Docking

When time-sensitive freight is on the move and customers are waiting in anticipation, cross-docking successfully overcomes a variety of shipping hurdles. By taking advantage of a specialty cross-docking facility (rather than using a typical storage warehouse), your products ship faster, you save on storage fees, and valuable inventory like cold freight and other important products are shielded from common storage and handling issues. So, how exactly can our cross-docking logistics simplify and strengthen every link in your supply chain?

The multi-tiered benefits associated with cross-docking logistics rely on a sophisticated and interconnected network of distribution partners. We have that nationwide network in place and provide our partners with direct access to this unparalleled distribution potential. Rather than shipping your products to a warehouse, hoping they store them properly, and then trusting in their fulfillment capabilities, our streamlined processes eliminate these potentially costly, time-consuming, and freight-damaging factors with reliable best practices.

What Can Cross Docking Help With?

At our partners’ cross-docking warehouses, our simple three-step process is the recipe for seamless transportation success. As soon as your products arrive at the facility, they are unloaded, sorted, and carefully loaded onto the most efficient outbound routes. This results in fewer handling risks, faster transitions at major freight transfer points, and lower trucking costs since our partners haul larger product volumes.

Rather than purchasing an entire trailer for a partial load, you pay a better rate since our bulk shipments consolidate multiple shipments into one. Rather than paying excessive cold or specialty storage fees, your products move through the facility quickly and arrive at your customers’ doorstep in significantly less time. Other worthwhile cross-docking benefits include:

Reduce Operation Costs & Protect Inventory

Shorten Delivery Lead Times

Free Up Storage Space in Your Warehouse

Our cross-docking services also liberate your company from the complexities involved with managing third-party warehousing partnerships. Even if you still retain a warehousing partnership, cross-docking logistics will greatly minimize your reliance on these facilities. Only store what you need to, while the majority of your products quickly progress from production at point A before arriving at point B, C, and finally your satisfied customers’ door ahead of schedule. This seamless process is especially valuable if you’re dealing with bulk shipments that are expensive to store, or you’re hoping to impress your customers with the fastest service and incredibly high inventory protection standards.
