Increased speed to market
With high turn rates and reduced handling, cross-docking helps to increase efficiency and get products to market faster.
Cross-docking requires a smaller footprint than traditional warehousing and often utilizes less labor as well.
Improved service levels
Because product is shipped in bulk and picked at the cross-dock, the practice offers great flexibility for changes to orders further down the supply chain.

Why Outsource Cross-Docking to a 3PL Partner?
Some companies outsource at least a portion of their cross-docking operations because they don’t have the resources in-house. Others, however, are outsourcing more of these processes, even though they can do it themselves, for a variety of reasons.
