CROSS DOCKING

We offer Cross Docking, which is nothing more than a distribution system where logistic units received on a platform are not stored, and instead are prepared to be distributed immediately.

The basic model of the Cross Docking is a process of consolidating and deconsolidating products of several orders.

PRE-DISTRIBUTED CROSS DOCKING

In the pre-distributed Cross Docking, the units to be distributed are pre-organized by the provider according to their delivery targets, therefore once they are received in the warehouse they are moved to the loading docks, where they are loaded into similar units from different vendors ready for their shipment. This is the most basic model to apply, since the units do not require any additional handling.

CONSOLIDATED OR INDIRECT CROSS DOCKING

In the Consolidated Cross Docking, logistic units are received and immediately sent to a conditioning area within the warehouse where they are organized forming new logistics units in order to be sent to their respective destinations. This strategy is often used where special offers require assembly of kits that will be shipped to chain stores or supermarkets.
