TGW supports you in streamlining your supply chain from the point of origin to the point of sale by a tailor made cross docking facility. The solution’s efficiency is guaranteed by drastically reducing warehousing and picking costs. Cross docking is especially suitable for the distribution of fresh food and fast moving consumer goods (FMCG).
With its PalDock and CaseDock solutions, TGW offers high performance cross docking modules for pallet loads and cases.Based on proven technology these solutions fulfil highest requirements in terms of performance, availability and reliability.
Cross docking reduces handling costs, operating costs, and the storage of inventory. That’s why this logistics method is used in various industries, e.g. the retail and grocery distribution. Originally cross docking was solely done by moving goods from one truck directly into another. Nowadays cross docking is able to handle larger and more complex operations. Therefore cross docking distribution centres may include highly efficient automation systems for staging, sorting and consolidating inbound materials for shipping. And even a very short term warehousing function might be included.
