Many businesses are using Bridgewater Logistics’ cross-docking services to accelerate deliveries and contain storage costs.
Instead of delivering cargo to a warehouse, goods are rather being offloaded from an inbound truck and transferred directly to another commercial vehicle at this leading transport and logistics provider’s docking terminals.
Turnaround times are swift and range from less than an hour to a day, while companies incur significant savings in costs associated with the handling of product, inventory storage and warehousing by pursuing a cross-docking solution.
Quinton de Villiers, managing director of Bridgewater Logistics, says over-and-above swift deliveries and cost-savings, cross-docking also minimises the handling of inventory, reducing the chance of damaging products in transit.
However, the company’s many clients also appreciate Bridgewater Logistics’ real-time status updates that accompany this service. Real-time shipment alerts and activity records also demonstrate the weight the company gives to accountability as part of its comprehensive service offering.
“Our key differentiator is decades of experience that allows us to design and deliver a thorough solution that meets all of your global logistics, transportation and warehousing requirements. Our combined in-house skills and experience encompasses the entire transport and logistics value chain, complemented by an intricate understanding of transport networks and resources,” the managing director concludes.
