Common Q&As on Illinois Cross Docking
If your trailer exceeds local weight limits and you don’t have another driver available to offload some of your freight to, a cross-dock service company can help. There are different solutions depending on which restrictions you are violating. If you exceed total weight restrictions, a cross-docking company can unload and hold a portion of your freight so that you are compliant with local road weight limits. If, however, you meet total weight limits but exceed individual axle weight restrictions, this is usually indicative of uneven cargo distribution. A cross-docking service company can shift your load and redistribute your cargo until you comply with local individual axle weight restrictions. Cross Dock America offers Illinois cross-docking services at convenient locations in Chicago.
Sometimes drivers make good time and get to their destinations early, but that could backfire on you if your customer is not ready to accept delivery. The expenses involved with finding short-term Illinois warehouse space, unloading your freight and reloading it once your retailer is ready to accept delivery can add up. So can the cost associated with sitting idly with your load waiting for the opportunity to deliver. A more efficient option would be to store your trailer until your inventory can be delivered. Cross Dock America provides comprehensive cross-docking services throughout Illinois, including trailer storage. Just drop your equipment off at one of our secure locations and your driver can be back on the road in no time. Cross Dock America operates cross-docking facilities in most major distribution hubs throughout country, including Chicago, IL.
Road construction, traffic, weather can all hinder a driver’s efforts to reach his or her delivery destination on time. Waiting to reschedule the delivery can be cost-prohibitive, whereas relying on the services of an Illinois cross-docking company can be an efficient solution. A comprehensive cross-docking company can unload your freight, hold it until a new delivery time can be scheduled, rework the freight, if necessary, and finally, redeliver it at the newly scheduled time. Cross Dock America’s Illinois cross-docking facilities provide all these services and more.
