Cross-Docking Services and your business
Warehousing materials can be an expensive and tedious business. Cross-docking is a practice that enables you to avoid warehousing by having shipments unloaded directly from delivery to outbound shipping. With our professional cross-docking services, you can avoid spending valuable time and money on warehousing. Our Dallas delivery service experts at Pronto Delivery can get your shipments there safely and on time.
Why Is Cross-Docking So Popular?
Cross-docking services have become increasingly popular in almost all areas of shipping. This innovative service has a number of advantages over more traditional warehouse-based delivery:
- Costs are decreased by cutting out the warehousing stage
- Delivery times are quicker
- Orders are filled more efficiently
Another advantage of cross-docking is the quick turnover of inventory and the related convenience in shipping perishable or time-sensitive products. We are available for consultation on all sorts of special shipping orders involving perishable goods.
How Can Cross-Docking Work for You?
For cross-docking to work efficiently, some basic requirements have to be met. Good communication between suppliers and distributors is essential for the system to flow smoothly. Geographical issues should be resolved, and a good transport network should be set up, often in a “hub and spoke” arrangement with a central processing location and a number of secondary centers. Customized software can also be used to handle the complex logistics of cross-docking services.
