How to Cross-Dock Without a Dock

Cross docking can be a nightmare for even the most sophisticated WMS (Warehouse Management System) not to mention the staff down on the floor trying to get it right.

It seems counter-intuitive to the average warehouse worker who has a preference for the slower pace of staging individual pallets where they can compare manifests to piece counts. Shipping and receiving can often lose count as physical inventory slowly begins to stray from that recorded in the system and this only gets worse over time.

Only real-time systems can prevent this problem and, as the above video demonstrates, you don’t even actually need a dock!
