With Tenpoint’s excellent customer service and commitment to transparency, you’ll always know where your goods are and what steps they will take before they reach their destination.
What Is Cross-Docking and Consolidation?
Cross-docking and consolidation services involve moving goods from supplier to customer with minimal handling. The goal is to quickly move the goods from the outbound dock of the supplier to the inbound dock of the retailer—hence the name “cross-dock.”
Cross-Docking and Consolidation Processes
Goods are first taken to a cross-dock warehouse where they can be deconsolidated. At the warehouse, staff unload the trucks and determine the endpoint of each item. The goods are then re-sorted and consolidated into new trucks according to their destination. This efficient process allows goods to be sent to their inbound dock without further need for handling.
How Can Cross-Docking Help Your Business?
We know retailers want to be able to respond to market changes and get their inventory fast. That’s why cross-docking is a great option to make sure you get your freight on time and undamaged.
