Cross docking involves a process that maintains the flow of products in your supply chain, saving you both time and money in the process. It enables the efficient transport of products from one truck to another truck (or railcar in either case). This operation occurs at a cross dock warehouse at which products are either stored for short period of time or not stored at all.At Minnesota Freezer Warehouse Company (MFWC), we can help you get your products where they need to go more efficiently with our cross docking warehousing capabilities.
