Frequently Asked Questions

What is Cross Docking?

Cross Docking, or Trans Shipping, is the utilisation of larger capacity vehicles to bring product to a hub closer to a customer base, and then decanting the product from the larger vehicle’s to a fleet of smaller vehicles which will undertake the final customer delivery

Why do people use Cross Docking?

This can be for a number of reasons. If the distance to your customer base is uneconomical to run smaller vehicles, the use of one larger truck may take too long to undertake all the smaller deliveries in an an area.  Clients may have specific delivery schedules they require their suppliers to keep to, making it necessary for multiple delivery trucks to be used.  Having a local cross docking hub near your customer base allows you to bring in stock in bulk, and distribute on smaller trucks or vans to fix both of the requirements above.

How do you handle returns with cross docking?

When a driver delivers stock to a client, he can collect any product intended as a return at the same time, and bring it back to our cross docking facility for processing.  This stock can then go into storage until such time as our client wants to return it to their base, or find another outlet for it
