What is cross-dock?

Cross-dock is a logistics process that involves the consolidation of shipments and the immediate transfer of goods from incoming delivery vehicles to outgoing delivery vehicles without storage or handling in between.  

 

Cross-docking is designed to reduce handling, transport costs and inventory levels by allowing products to move from the supplier to the customer with minimal handling.
