Cross-Docking is a practice in logistics of unloading materials from an incoming vehicle and loading these materials directly into outbound vehicles with little or no storage in between. This may be done to change type of conveyance, to sort material intended for different destinations, or to combine material from different origins into transport vehicles (or containers) with the same, or similar destination. In the LTL (Less than truckload) trucking industry, cross-docking can be done by moving cargo from one transport vehicle directly into another, with minimal or no warehousing. In retail practice, cross-docking operations may utilize staging areas (dock) where inbound materials are sorted, consolidated, and stored until the outbound shipment is complete and ready to ship.
Within the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software Cross-Docking is implemented by connecting outbound sales orders (Demand) with inbound purchase orders or Work orders (Supply). The sales orders can have shipments attached to them (Transportation module) or can generate Pick Requests (Warehousing module) however neither is a requirement in order to use Cross-Docking.
