By allowing Cross Docks Australia to take this extra level of complication off your hands, it is just one less thing you have to worry about.

 

Cross Docking

As the name suggests we are specialist providers of cross docking services. Cross docking is the process whereby many different companies deliver their goods in bulk to a central point. At the cross dock distribution centre, these goods are broken into cartons and allocated to separate stores. Then bundled up into Store pallets and delivered.

It is a way of stream lining delivery of stock between a manufacturer and supplier that reduces transport costs and decreases inventory storage by ensuring rapid turnaround of stock. This method is usually employed by large retailers, such as department stores and service station chains.

 

Consultant Services

If you are not ready to shift your warehouse and want some guidance on how to improve your systems and increase efficiency, Cross Docks Australia can offer expert Consultant Services to assess your warehouse and put together a plan on how you can improve your existing warehouse or stage a gradual shift to outsourcing.
