An efficient cross dock operation can stream line your supply chain by reducing handling and inventory holding costs. We typically use our cross dock operations in combination with our freight forwarding services in order to provide you (our client) with end to end real-time visibility and substantial operational cost savings.
In addition to a traditional cross dock service, we can also consolidate shipments from many suppliers in order to ship to your various customers. One of current cross dock customers uses AEL span to consolidate shipments from over 500 active suppliers to over 420 customer locations in 85 countries, shipping an average of 20 containers per week. In this operation, we have substantially reduced our client’s inventory levels and improved container utilization providing incredible cost savings.
