Cross-docking is a logistic service that takes place in the distribution docking terminal. In this procedure products are unloaded from an inbound dock then transferred to an outbound transportation dock. Demystifying cross-docking requires a clear understanding of where and how it happens. One unique feature of cross-docking is that products are supplied to consumers or retail chains directly from manufacturers. Here the goods are not subject to handling time; hence are labelled appropriately. It comes in handy for consumers that can’t access the manufacturers directly.
Reduction of Costs :– Cross-docking allows for immediate shipping and arrival to the destination; hence the cost of storing inventory for an extended period is reduced remarkably.
No Risk of Damaging The Product : As it is, how a product is handled dictates its lifespan. With cross-docking, the level at which people come into contact with the products is minimal, reducing the chances of risk to the products.
Shortens Shipping Time : We bet you already have a clue of the time-saving attribute of cross-docking. Emphasizing the same, it is vital to note that shipping occurs as soon as an order is made.
One Business Relationship : Having multiple business relationships might stir confusion. With cross-docking, you can keep one business relationship that comes in handy for you in many ways. Instead of having different shipping relationships for other shipping services, you can opt for one that caters to everything, thanks to cross-docking.
