Having a structured storage system for goods in a warehouse is an obligation for companies that run in the retail or manufacturing sector. As a manufacturer, avoiding product storage has become a principle. Because, the longer the product is stored, it means that there is no income for the company and even poses additional risk.
Cross docking is a logistics strategy in which goods are unloaded from one source into a warehouse or another transit area, then immediately transferred to outbound transportation with as little storage time as possible. This method makes the system in the warehouse more effective. Because before, a company often had to have many suppliers who brought each product to a retail store.
Here are some of the advantages of the cross docking method:
- Minimize storage costs (Inventory)
- Efficiency in the distribution process
- Accelerate the flow of products from suppliers to retail stores
- Faster delivery time
- Maintain the value of an item (Keep new, keep fresh)
This method will run more effectively if the fleet that transports the goods also has maximum performance. Well, EasyGo GPS with its Transportation Management System Solution can help your company with its advanced features for the company’s fleet!
