Crossdocking and Dropshipping

Dropshipping is a form of logistics in which products are sent immediately to the final address, without being stored in the meantime. With cross-docking, incoming goods are immediately passed through without having to store them first.

Crossdocking

Crossdocking is a logistics process in which incoming goods are immediately moved from the receiving location to the outgoing location without being stored in between. Cross-docking can help as an intermediary between multiple centers to efficiently organize the flow of goods. 

Dropshipping 

Dropshipping is a form of e-commerce in which the web store sends the product directly from the supplier to the end consumer. The webshop therefore sells products that are not in stock. As a result, the web store has no risk when keeping stock, but in addition, the influence in the logistics process after ordering is also small
