Cross docking is a logistics strategy that keeps the supply chain moving. While both load transfers and cross docking involve handling the cargo and delivering it to another destination, cross dock services involve unloading cargo from a truck or container onto another truck for delivery. Because the product is not stored, delivery time is minimized and often takes less than 24 hours. Cross docking requires excellent communication between carriers and shippers for it to do its job―cut down on time in the supply chain. The cross dock strategy is to be more efficient.
With our fleet of moving equipment, Gabrielson’s can provide any cross docking services.
