Cross docking

Cross docking is as old as distribution but the issues associated with staging over the road (OTR) trailers and developing time critical delivery and shipping schedules have been replaced with simpler, more efficient methods. LoadBank International uses advanced bi-directional unit load conveyor staging to accommodate multiple receiving lanes and multiple shipping lanes all within close proximity of the OTR trailers. This allows greater flexibility in scheduling and lowers labor, space and transport-equipment costs.
