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.
