Cross docking takes place when SCSI unloads materials from an incoming source (Sea Containers, trucks, trailers, rail cars, etc.) and loads these materials directly into outbound transport vehicles with little or no storage in between. This may be done to change the type of delivery method, to sort material intended for different destinations, or to combine material from different origins into transport vehicles with the same destination or similar destinations.
