What is Cross Docking?

Cross docking entails unloading the contents of a tractor trailer truck or other transport vehicle or container and transferring the load directly to another truck, rail car, airliner or transport container.

Cross docking eliminates the need for maintaining large warehouses and storage facilities, particularly at transition points, such as those where a large truck’s load is divided amongst smaller trucks which travel a local route. It’s also ideal for condensing multiple smaller loads into one larger load, particularly in cases where you have less-than-truckload (LTL) sized loads.
