Cross docking

What is cross docking?

 

Cross docking is a logistics procedure in which the products are unloaded from inbound delivery carriers and are directly loaded onto outbound carriers with less handling or storage. Cross-docking can help company’s to move goods to market faster and more efficiently. This strategy keeps supply chains moving in a productive, effective manner. The main objective behind cross-docking is to get a product from business to a customer with minimum damage, cost and time. Cross dock operations are used successfully in retail distribution environments and local markets where large quantities of inbound goods must be sorted, staged and distributed out to numerous physical locations.
