Cross docking is designed to be a quick turnaround service. How is it faster?
Cross docks usually involve moving products from an incoming truck onto an outbound truck, with very little storage time between receiving and reshipping. Sometimes there is no storage time at all. While this type of service is often quick, it can last for weeks or months based on client needs. Whatever the timeline, cross-docking shipments are always dropped off and picked up intact without any alterations (product being removed or added).
