Crossdocking and transloading Strategic international warehousing can make or break your success. Our integrated solutions optimise inventory levels and can reduce logistics costs.
At Damco’s transload and cross dock facilities, cargo is transferred from (ocean) containers directly into outbound trailers and consolidated with other freight to final customer with little or no storage in between. This especially benefits where a distribution centre is situated far from port of entry and/or far from regional DCs or final destination, reducing average inland transport costs significantly.
 
Main advantages include:
  • Eliminates the need for a central DC at port of entry
  • Postponement of final allocation of goods until the PO/container reaches port of entry
  • Reduces average inland transport costs
  • Reduces number of receiving docks at your DC 
  • More efficient scheduling of labor at DC

 

Damco’s services include

  • Container drayage from port to cross-dock facility
  • Multiple container arrivals same day for de-vanning
  • Automatic sorting and straight in-out concept
  • Dispatch of trailers by road or rail to inland DC
  • Domestic Advance Shipment Notification
