How Does Cross Docking Work?

Cross-docking refers to the transfer of items in a shipment between vehicles with little to no time in storage. Many times this is done directly between vehicles, or it may involve brief or short-term storage at a warehouse.

A cross-docking service company will unload materials from one incoming truck directly into a truck that is on its way out. This transfer will take place at a distribution docking terminal, where the products are moved from one truck in the inbound dock to the one that is waiting on the outbound side. If any screening or sorting is required, it will happen here. This way products never have to remain in the terminal for an extended period of time.

The benefits of cross-docking include:

  • Reduction or elimination of inventory storage costs
  • Reduced overall handling and handling costs
  • A central site to sort or combine products
  • The shortened turnover time between shipment and delivery
  • Streamlined supply chain
