Cross-Dock Services Delta, BC

What is Cross-Docking?

Cross-docking is a practice in logistics of unloading materials from an incoming semi-trailer truck or railroad car and loading these materials directly into outbound trucks, trailers, or rail cars, with little or no storage in between.

Cross Docking Benefits

Cross-docking is a great tool to have in your logistics tool belt. First, cross-docking reduces the square footage needed in your facility. Because little to no storage occurs, only a small amount of space is needed for this activity, significantly reducing the footprint of your facility and the associated costs. It also reduces inventory carrying costs and material handling needs. This in turn results in increased product quality, which equals reduced costs associated to damaged goods. Additional benefits include reduced delivery times which produce improved customer service levels.
