Crossdocking services and Transloading Services are different strategies but they both work to achieve the same goal. This is handling the product and delivery to multiple destinations, changing delivery transportation or the shipping container along the way.
Crossdocking services include little to no storage but otherwise is a system that delivers the goods right to the retailer or suppliers from right off the boat. This process sometimes can also be used with a truckload being divided into smaller trucks. This requires communication and coordination amongst 3PL carriers and shippers.
Cross Docking gains the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of shipping in full truckload quantities. With Florida Warehousing, we are efficient and quick to transfer your product by implementing an outbound method or breaking them down (pick and pack) and packing them based on your need, setting them in their specific staging area, and sending it off the appropriate location.
