Cross Docking

A central hub for merge-in-transit.

We collect, (de-)consolidate and ship to the destination of your choice.

Cross-docking is the process where incoming products are directly put in line for shared loading into trucks with the right destination. We take care of this with minimal or no warehousing activities in between.

Are you consolidating multiple sales orders in one truck or container at the source with the aim to deliver them straight to customers? Cross-docking might be a solution. We call this merge-in-transit. Lead-times are shortened and inventory is kept to the minimum while service improves and working capital is optimized. This requires good knowledge and understanding of your business and integration of processes. Our people and systems are equipped to service you from our strategically located cross-dock facilities in the Benelux. Besides this we make use of well trusted partner hubs in Europe.
