CROSS DOCK SERVICES

 

LEAN LOGISTICS

 

We provide cross dock services for our domestic and international clients from ports across the UK. Shipping into the UK can be costly, we help you reduce costs by cutting out or minimising the storage of your goods.

Our partners drop off their trailer goods and load their materials (sometimes) directly into our outbound lorries or trailers with little or no storage in between.

This may be done to change the type of conveyance, to sort material intended for different destinations, or to combine material from different origins into transport vehicles with the same or similar destinations.

Cross dock (or cross docking) is an efficient and fast way of transporting your goods and cutting costs and you can trust us to get it to its final destination in the UK.

    QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

    Useful information

     
    What are the types of cross docking?

    Continuous Cross-Docking
    The simplest and fastest cross-docking process. It provides a central site for products, so they are immediately transferred from an inbound truck to an outbound truck.

    Consolidation Arrangements
    The process of merging several smaller product loads onto one van or one big load in the dock facility. This way, incoming freight is combined with goods stored at the terminal to form full truckload shipments.

    Deconsolidation Arrangements
    Large product loads are broken into smaller loads for easy transportation. Usually, these small loads are shipped directly to a customer.

    Advantages of cross docking

    Cross docking is a cost-effective logistics strategy which quickly sorts goods rather than storing them in distribution centres.
