Efficient. Productive. Cost effective.
Inventory can be one of the biggest expenses a company accumulates during the life of a product. In fact, storage can cost up to 67% of your total warehousing costs—large inventories sitting around waiting to be sold can start to compile warehousing costs. That’s where cross-docking comes in to save your business time and money.
Cross Docking gains the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of shipping in full truckload quantities. We are efficient and quick to transfer the product to an outbound method or break them down (pick and pack) and pack them based on your need, set them in their specific staging area, and sent off the appropriate location. These staging areas offer a designated spot for inbound product to be sorted, combined and stored until the outbound shipment is ready to go, minimizing your need and cost of warehousing.
Having a clean, safe and reliable cross-dock facility is an integral middle process in moving inventory from producers to consumers, retailers, and wholesalers.
