What is cross-docking in logistics?

Cross-docking is a series of logistics operations, whereby the receipt and delivery of goods is coordinated as accurately as possible and the product arrives at the destination within the agreed time. Cross-docking is especially effective for several types of products.

  • ✓ Foods with limited shelf life,
  • ✓ High quality products that do not require further verification during the admission process,
  • ✓ Products that have high demand,
  • ✓ Products to be delivered on time.

The following types of cross-docking are distinguished:

  • ✓ Cross-docking of one stage
  • ✓ Cross-docking consisting of two stages. In this case, the process consists of the following sub-steps:
    • ➣ Freight acceptance
    • ➣ Sorting
    • ➣ Sending to the customer.
