Inbound Handling:

Cross-Docking

The Direct Connection Between Inbound Freight and Outbound Orders

Dematic Cross-Docking solutions eliminate costly, space-intensive storage of inbound products. Whether moving pallets of product or sorting high volumes of incoming cartons/cases to outbound trailers, Dematic has the cost-effective solution for fast, accurate cross docking.

Dematic iQ software fully automates sortation by adjusting equipment speed depending on demand and volume. The result is an energy-efficient solution that reduces equipment wear and minimizes labour costs.

How Cross-Docking Works

  1. Inbound cases are unloaded from incoming trailers and placed on induction conveyors.
  2. Cases are scanned to identify destination.
  3. Dematic high-speed sortation systems route the cases to shipping lanes.
