Cross-docking is a process that aims to reduce shipment sizes and shorten lead times. Do you want to ship your products to different locations across the country or beyond in a timely manner? Then cross-docking is an interesting option.
What is Cross-docking?
Cross-docking means that goods are reshipped upon unloading. The goods are therefore not first stored in the Brouwers warehouse, which speeds up the logistics process: goods do not have to go through the picking process again and are loaded directly onto the outgoing transport.
What are the benefits? What does it offer you?
- Brouwers has listed the benefits of cross-docking:
You save on storage costs.
- The products are available in a shorter timeframe.
- Sending products in a single shipment saves postage: shipping costs and freight charges.
With cross-docking, it is very important that goods with the same final destination are actually going in the same direction. Goods that go to a different destination must therefore be properly separated from each other. Brouwers has the right vehicles to get the goods to the right place quickly.
All these orders are controlled from the central WMS system that supports cross-docking activities. Multiple shipments can thus be combined with goods that had already been picked.
