Cross-docking facilities have traditionally been used at regional distribution centres but with ever increasing restrictions in accessing major cities, due to environmental concerns, are becoming increasingly popular for off-loading trailers into smaller vehicles, usually electric. They are also ideal for airports or ports for reducing inventory carrying costs by ensuring stock is available sooner, as well as driving down supply chain costs.
Features and options available include:
From vans to double-decker lorries.
Distribute perishable goods quickly.
Reduce costs such as demurrage and quay rent.
Lower your transport costs and CO2 emissions.
Maximising your product shelf life.
Optimise the drop-off and picking processes, minimising handling times.
