What is cross-docking?
Cross-docking is a distribution system where items received at the warehouse are not received into stock but prepared for shipment to another location straightaway. Asendia’s cross-docking solution mainly focusses on delivery to consumers through our mail or parcel services, but we do also provide distribution to retailers and events too.
Is cross-docking right for you?
Is physical space at your manufacturing site at a premium, perhaps you require the unloading and merging of bulk deliveries from various manufacturers, or you run promotions with a low number of SKU’s and high number of orders in a short period of time, or are able to supply products pre-sold; so urgency is required. If any of this holds true cross-docking could make sense.
- Streamline your supply chain with this quicker fulfilment model
- Minimise the use of space, with no longer term storage
- It can reduce the cost of labour with minimal handling required i.e. no putting away
- Goods arrive quickly to the consumer so they are happy
- Decreased margin for error with less time spent on handling inventory
