Cross Docking

Streamline your distribution process while reducing your operating costs. Check out our smart system.

Cross Docking is a distribution logistics strategy that delivers business innovation and progress. Considered a method different from others, Cross Docking is an alternative to reduce operating costs and streamline the entire distribution process.

Cross Docking is a distribution system that receives the goods and delivers them to the customer. In this system, the supplier sends the product to the center according to the customer’s demand and the delivery is made immediately by the distribution center. This is a strategy widely used by virtual stores and e-commerce, which don’t have their own storage places.

To implement Cross Docking in your company, you will need to invest in a business management system that allows the organization of flows and operations, negotiate with suppliers, have a service team available to avoid operational errors and find a distribution center capable of supporting demand.

Types of Cross Docking

Continuous movement

In this type of cross docking, organization and control are essential so that the merchandise goes from the point of reception to the distribution center and doesn’t risk being retained in warehouses.

Consolidated or hybrid movement

In this case, the goods are received separately, some of them are destined for certain customers, while others are sent to others or directed to stock.

Distribution movement

The products received are separated and combined with each other to be distributed in full loads to the respective customers.

business.
