Cross docking and Trans Loading help businesses save money and perform efficiently by minimizing warehouse time and keeping products on the move. Crossdock and transload services both involve taking products intended for delivery to multiple destinations and putting them on a different truck or container than the inbound shipment.
Crossdock services allow products to be unloaded directly from one truck onto another truck for delivery. Instead of unloading and putting products away into a warehouse for storage, the products are staged near dock doors where they are ready for reloading. With little to no storage, turnaround time between receipt and shipment is usually less than 24hours.
Big Red can arrange for cross-dock facilities and match your load up with carriers traveling to the same geographical area. Cross-docking allows you to avoid storage costs and keeps your products moving so they arrive at their final destination more quickly.
Our system and oversight also provide visibility to both factory production and inbound freight. Receipts, transfers, shipments, and status changes are tracked internally for our clients.
