You have one inbound container and several final destinations?
We have a solution for you!
Let’s imagine you are importing a container to the East Coast. The final destination is actually in Mid-West, and the ocean carrier requires to return the container within 24 hours. Not a problem. 1&1 Transportation will dray your container, transport to our warehouse, transload the contents into the warehouse and return the container to port. Then we’ll arrange transportation of the goods to the final destination.
Cross-docking is when we receive import container and then unload the contents from an inbound shipment and combine them with other materials or re-processing for final delivery with little or no storage in between. By doing so, cross docking eliminates the storage and labor costs of conventional warehousing.
