Cross Docking usually happens when a carrier does not have a warehouse in the destination they are delivering to, so they need a warehouse to offload and hold the goods until it can be picked up or transferred to another truck.
Cross Docking is also used in inventory handling when a loaded truck is not loaded properly and the weight needs to be adjusted on the trailer. We strip the trailer and reload it placing the weight correctly over the axles. This allows the truck driver to now pass over the scales properly and avoid a fine.
CSS is conveniently located close to scales in the West end of Edmonton to help assist when loads need to be adjusted.
