Cross-docking model

Cross-docking basically involves receiving the merchandise at the inbound docks and then shipping it out shortly after without the need to stock it at the warehouse. If planned and executed properly it saves the intermediate disposition, storage and order fulfillment tasks in the warehouse. Well planned cross-docking operations save resources across the board, at the warehouse like labor, space, and equipment; and also technology resources by simplifying the process.

As cross-docking does not require the inventory to be stored at the warehouse, it provides dual advantages of:

  • Operational Efficiency: As the material does not have to be stored at the warehouse, and directly moves from the receiving docks to the shipping docks or staging areas, the warehouse operations are more efficient.
  • Inventory Efficiency: As the inventory moves directly from the receiving to shipping docks, there is no storage at the warehouses for the cross-docked items and that reduces the total system inventory in the supply chain.

There are two variants of cross-docking that can be leveraged. Both of these address different situations and need specific process/system capabilities but both are founded in the cross-docking concept and provide the same advantages.

Whether you need to transfer goods quickly between different transport modes, efficiently separate and sort materials intended for different destinations, or combine goods from different origins into a single shipment for distribution – we offer cross docking services to help streamline your supply chain.

Through cross docking distribution, products destined for a similar (or the same) end point can be consolidated into one shipment and transported as a full load, reducing overall distribution costs

We provide three main types of cross docking services:

  • Hub and spoke
    A centralised facility is provided for products to be received and sorted – similar products are combined so that shipments can be delivered to the required destinations quickly and efficiently.
  • Consolidation
    Multiple smaller consignments are received and combined into one larger shipment for economical forwarding.
  • Deconsolidation
    Large shipments are received and broken down into smaller loads for easier onward delivery.

We offer customised cross docking solutions to suit our customers’ needs, transporting goods into our cross-dock warehouses to check, unload and pick up shipments into new loads intended for single or multiple destinations.
