When Time Is an Issue, Van Brunt Has Your Back
Do you need Supply Chain Solutions? Often the movement of products is so quick so as to bypass storage methods completely. Van Brunt Logistics excels in speedy cross-docking services for transferring products directly from ocean containers into road trailers. We work hard to consolidate your products into one easy-to-access vehicle.
Cross-docking is a distribution system where items received at the warehouse are not received into stock but are prepared for shipment to another location, typically via truck, shipping container or rail. Cross-dock operations focus on speed and efficiency to reduce the amount of time inventory sits in the warehouse. This is beneficial to retail because it increases the velocity of merchandise and decreases inventory-carrying costs. Instead of the typical 60-90 days, cross-dock aims to break down large shipments or combine shipments for delivery within 36 hours.
Transloading is the mixing of transportation modes to better support and satisfy the needs of our customers. By blending the benefits of shipping by rail and local/short haul trucking, the Van Brunt Logistic services can provide more flexible solutions for customers who may not be located near freight railroads as well as those who have existing side tracks but need expanded warehousing. Transloading works for many commodities including finished and unfinished goods, fresh food and beverage products, lumber, paper, metals, building materials, a variety of packaged bulk commodities as well as special shipments that cannot travel their entire route by road.
By forgoing storage, your company can streamline the supply chain from point of origin to point of sale, getting product to consumers quicker and more efficiently. Cross-docking services with Van Brunt drastically reduces costs and virtually eliminates warehouse fees making it a great option for businesses that need to turn product around quickly and resolve supply chain problems.
