Cross Docking.

What exactly is Cross Docking?

Cross docking is a common logistics approach utilized in the retail industry and transportation industries. It is used in order to combine cargo shipments quickly from different sources and attain economic gains in outward-bound transportation costs. The concept is to move new inbound shipments straight to outbound trailers without having to store merchandise for any length of time. Shipments generally set for less than twenty-four hours at a warehouse facility, and at times under a few hours.
