Cross-docking allows pallets to be forwarded directly to the customer without storage. The products are loaded at the manufacturer's premises and trans-shipped on our site to another trailer for transport. Ideal for products with a short shelf life, such as both chilled and frozen foods.
At Müller, we cross-dock thousands of shipments every day for many different customers. Shipments are dispatched to delivery addresses in combined fashion. For example, we cross-dock many shipments destined for retail and wholesale distribution centres. By bundling pallets onto one trailer, we save costs for our customers. The high loading factor also makes this a very sustainable transport solution.
Müller sets great store by corporate social responsibility. That comes in the form of support for good causes as well as serious investment in sustainability. We are actively committed to making our operations more sustainable in the widest sense. As well as being its own reward, this has earned us the Lean & Green Star Award.
