Cross Docking

What is Cross docking?

Supply Chain Solutions Image

Cross docking allows our customers to reduced handling and storage costs while improving turnaround speed and transportation costs.  By routing products from different sites into Southampton Terminal’s distribution center we can consolidate the items into one or multiple shipments and send them back out. Or as an example, your goods are shipped in bulk to Southampton Terminal where we deconsolidate the goods into multiple shipments and then ship them directly to your clients.  Value added services such as labeling, sorting, repackaging, or product assembly are just some of the advantages to using Southampton Terminal.

Cross docking is ideal for customers who:

  • Ship items from one or many facilities to one location in order to do additional work
  • Need special services such as labeling, repacking, order fulfillment, or product assembly.
  • Require consolidation of multiple shipments into a bulk shipment
  • Require deconsolidation of a bulk shipment into many smaller shipments directly to your customer (this is used where our customer would have many manufacturing/origin points shipped to our distribution center in order complete order fulfillment
  • TO reduce overhead costs in storing your inventory “in-house.”
