Cross Dock Operations

Bay Logistics Cross Dock Operations

“Cross-docking” can be defined as the practice of unloading goods from inbound delivery vehicles and loading them directly onto designated outbound vehicles. Cross-docking can streamline supply chains and help move goods to market faster and cheaper by consolidating freight destined for the same locations.

Bay will lower transportation expenses and minimize less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments through freight consolidation. Bay Logistics is proficient and experienced in all aspects of managing a cross dock.

Main Reasons Cross Docking Is Used

  • Provide a central site for products to be sorted and similar products combined to be delivered to many destinations in the fastest and most productive way.

  • Combine smaller product loads into one method of transport to save on transportation costs.

  • Create smaller product loads out of larger loads for transportation to create an easier delivery process to the customer.
