What Do I Look for in a Good Third-Party Logistics Company?
For local, national, and international shipping, you need to make sure your warehousing and distribution company is located in a place where sea, air, and rail travel is nearby and accessible. Partnering with Load Bearing Logistics LTD gives you the convenience and versatility you expect from businesses in the Greater Toronto Area.
A good cross-docking setup minimizes waste and spoilage, overhead for renter warehousing space, and keeps customers happy by decreasing shipping time. Because your product isn’t generating revenue when it’s sitting on shelves, it’s easy to see how many businesses can benefit from it, especially businesses providing perishable goods.
But you want to make sure that your supply chain management company has experience using cross-dock shipping systems. Without the right technology and training, your cargo could be lost, costing you thousands. Cross-docking increases the risk of inventory problems if your warehousing and distribution company doesn’t use the latest technology to keep a tight lid on inventory.
Advantages of Cross-Docking
As a business-owner, it is almost always in your best interest to use cross-docking as part of your supply chain. From point-of-origin to point-of-sale, crossdocking can streamline the overall process.
As a leading logistics expert in the GTA, we serve businesses in a variety of industries. We emphasize speed, precision, and organization above all else. Our clients depend on our advanced cross-docking services to keep their inventories well-stocked and readily available.
Below are just some of the many benefits of choosing cross-docking services.
Cross-docking provides lowered costs in a number of ways. By choosing direct, point-to-point transportation for your inventory, you are reducing your warehouse storage expenses.
Working with Load Bearing Logistics instead of multiple businesses for your shipping needs, you will also save significantly. The lowered labor costs from the additional unloading, storage, and reloading of your materials will result in saved funds as well.
Our just-in-time shipping processes use the best technology in the business. We’ll save you significant costs and transport your inventory to you faster than ever!
The number one reason people choose cross-docking services is simple: it’s faster. Your inventory proceeds more seamlessly from the point of production/assembly to your business’s location. Instead of inventory sitting for long periods of time in storage, it is moved swiftly from one means of transportation to another.
With reduced handling and high turnover rates, your items will arrive at your location faster.
This is particularly accurate in the case of goods which are perishable or seasonal, which require urgent arrival. Your clients will appreciate the added speed and efficiency of your product line.
When you choose Load Bearing Logistics’ cross-docking services, you are choosing not to bother with warehousing storage. As a result, you have much more storage space available. No matter how you intend to use it, this will provide multiple advantages to your business. You can reduce your overstocking and free up your in-house warehousing for other uses.
Decreased Risk to Inventory
Cross-docking involved reduced handling— it removes the need for items to be placed into and removed from storage.
Orderly, meticulous shipping of items the moment they arrive means your inventory is much less likely to be damaged. With the greater speed, your inventory is also more likely to arrive fresh and unspoiled.
Load Bearing Logistics’ safe shipping standards ensure that your items arrive intact and on schedule.
Increased Customer Satisfaction
The greater speed and efficiency provided by cross-docking is certain to please your customer base.
For custom-ordered items, cross-docking will result in a faster shipping and delivery for the client.
