In the world of logistics, cross-docking is recognized as the practice of unloading materials from an incoming shipping container or truck, and then loading them in outbound trucks, shipping containers, or trailers. In most cases, these processes can be completed in a short period of time. In addition, cross docking is an outsourced activity. Third party logistics companies are usually hired to deliver a solution for retailers and wholesalers.
As mentioned, your cargo will be unloaded from one truck before being loaded into another waiting container or truck. This can happen due to the need to combine materials from different origins, sort materials intended for different destinations, or a change of conveyance type. All in all, you will benefit from cross docking services if you need to consolidate shipments from multiple vendors to a single customer.
