What is a cross docking warehouse?
Cross docking warehouse is a short term 3PL warehouse solution for products that quickly get transported in and out of frozen and refrigerated warehouses and shipped to a consignee. A cross dock warehouse is a cold storage warehouse that receives and unloads inbound trucks, then quickly consolidates and loads outbound trucks to be delivered to various retail, warehouse, and distribution center locations nationwide. The process eliminates the need for a traditional cold storage warehousing solution, as products get transported out of the cross dock facility to their final destination on a regular basis
A cross docking facility is ideal for the frozen and refrigerated food and beverage industry. Warehouse and distribution centers work to reduce inventories; thus, order sizes are smaller and more frequent. Additionally, frozen and refrigerated foods have a shelf life that requires the inventory to turn quickly.
