Fast. Cost-Effective. Flexible.

Our fast and efficient cross docking operations keeps your inventory moving quickly to save resources across the board.

Crossdocking is a logistics technique used in the transportation of goods from suppliers to customers. It involves unloading goods from an incoming shipment and loading them directly onto outbound trucks or trailers, without storing them in a warehouse or distribution center.

Here is the basic process:

  • Cargo arrives at our  warehousing facility
  • Items are unloaded to a staging/loading area
  • Inventory is sorted and consolidated into new shipments
  • Shipments leave our facility
  • Our warehouse and distribution center utilizing crossdocking have loading docks and loading/staging area to optimize inventory flow from inbound to outbound.

With a 45,000 square-foot warehouse and four dock bays, Total Freight Solutions can handle all of your cross-docking needs. We have forklifts, as well as long forks, chains, spare pallets, and shrink-wrap to sort and reorganize your freight for proper shipping.

Advantages of Cross Docking in Supply Chain Management

Cross Docking is designed to streamline the movement of goods through the supply chain and offers several advantages:

Reduced Inventory Holding Costs
Cross-docking minimizes the need for warehousing and storage space, leading to lower inventory holding costs. This can result in significant savings in terms of rent, utilities, and labor required for managing warehouses.
Faster Order Fulfillment
Products can move from the supplier to the customer more quickly since they don’t spend much time in storage. This reduces lead times and allows for faster order processing and delivery, which can improve customer satisfaction.
Lower Handling Costs
Cross-docking reduces the need for multiple handling and repackaging of products. This results in lower labor and material handling costs, as well as reduced risks of product damage or loss during handling.
Improved Inventory Management
By minimizing the amount of time products spend in storage, cross-docking helps in better inventory turnover management. It allows companies to maintain lower safety stock levels while still meeting customer demand.
Enhanced Product Quality and Freshness
Cross-docking is especially beneficial for products with short shelf lives, such as perishable goods. By reducing the time products spend in storage, it helps maintain product freshness and quality.
Streamlined Distribution
Cross-docking can simplify distribution networks by consolidating products from multiple suppliers and then distributing them to various destinations in a more organized manner. This can lead to a more efficient and cost-effective distribution process.
Reduced Transportation Costs
With cross-docking, trucks can be loaded more efficiently and with higher utilization rates. This can lead to reduced transportation costs, as fewer trips are required to move the same amount of goods.
Flexibility and Responsiveness
Cross-docking facilities are typically designed for flexibility and adaptability. They can quickly respond to changes in demand, product mix, or transportation schedules, making supply chains more agile.
Better Visibility and Control
Cross-docking facilities often use advanced tracking and monitoring systems, providing better visibility into the movement of products. This improved visibility allows for better control and management of the supply chain.
Environmental Benefits
By reducing the number of stops and transfers, cross-docking can contribute to lower carbon emissions and a more environmentally friendly supply chain.
