It is sometimes important to ensure that goods reach their destination as quickly as possible. A good example would be the fresh products that need to be delivered to supermarkets. The cross-docking offered by DL is the answer here.
Immediate unloading, reloading and delivery
Cross-docking means your freight arrives at our premises, is immediately unloaded and then reloaded in such a way that every part of the shipment reaches its destination without delay.
- Your goods do not have to go into storage first, so they become available more quickly.
- You avoid unnecessary storage costs.
Cross-docking: is this for you?
Cross-docking could be profitable for you; it just depends on your situation. DL would be very willing to discuss this with you. Do you have goods in Frankfurt that need to be shipped to China? If so, it may be cheaper to collect the goods in Frankfurt as return cargo and then to transfer them to a container. DL can arrange this for you from start to finish.
