What Is Cross-Docking?

Cross-docking is a lean supply chain model that involves the immediate or faster transfer of finished goods directly from suppliers or manufacturers to customers or retailers with little to no handling or storage. 

All of our distribution and warehouse facilities across Alabama offer this service. 

Cross-docking services enable businesses to accelerate the fulfillment process and creates faster replenishment, reduces middle- and last-mile shipping costs by positioning inventory closer to the end customer, and allows companies to service their end customers better.

How does Cross-Docking work?

Cross-docking isn’t a complicated process, but it does require some expertise and planning to execute efficiently. While it’s a relatively simple model, it requires exact precision and perfect planning to keep things organized and on track. 

Truckloads arrive at the entrance of our warehouse loading dock.

The goods get unloaded and sorted from the first truck and loaded onto another truck.

The newly loaded trucks deliver the goods to the customers and eliminate the need for products to sit in storage

Benefits of Cross-Docking

Cross-docking enables a leaner supply chain and is perfect for businesses wanting to accelerate their order fulfillment process, reduce overall costs, and speed up the time it takes for products to reach their final destinations.

If you use BR Williams cross-docking / transloading services at our Mobile, Alabama Distribution Center containers can be unloaded and returned back to APM Terminals in Mobile, Alabama. This option helps free you from chassis fees and reduces detention charges for shipments further away from the dock.

Overweight containers can also be unloaded close to the Port of Mobile and shipped to their final destinations in dry vans of legal weight. 

Faster Shipping & Receiving Times

Cross-docking also benefits the consumer by reducing shipping times and, in turn, increasing consumer satisfaction rates. This reflects well upon the business and keeps customers coming back for more. 

Since storing products requires labor that can be reduced or eliminated, goods reach the final destination much sooner. In addition, shipping efficiency increases because bigger batches get broken down into smaller shipments and loaded onto freight going in the same direction.

A trusted Alabama cross-docking service partner like BR Williams can handle all of the logistics for you and ensure your strategy is working for your products.
