Cross Docking services - CDS Group

Cross docking is a method based on speed and agility and is generally used in hub-and-spoke operations. In brief, it is the shipment and collection of goods by bypassing the storage facility. It is a fairly easy method of handling inventory that involves loading and unloading inventory from an incoming truck onto an outbound truck. During cross docking storage times vary.
