Distribution & cross docking

Delivering your goods from door-to-door on time from one continent to another is one thing. It's quite another to use this transit time to release your company's tied-up capital. Our Distribution & Cross-docking services allow you to increase your warehouse turnover rate, simplify administration and turn fixed overheads into floating costs.

Distribution & cross-docking

Distribution & cross docking

GEODIS is able to combine volumes from different origins and consolidate them into one final delivery to the consignee. This means you can reduce storage costs, improve transport economy by consolidating into one 'large' shipment and reduce inventory costs by streamlining the flow from the supplier. We can also deconsolidate large shipments for distribution to multiple consignees.

Warehouse & storage

In your line of business you may experience seasonal changes and temporary overflows. In such instances we can offer you flexible storage solutions for which you do not have to make any capital investments. Instead, you share our resources and reduce supply chain costs. By utilizing our warehousing solutions, you can turn fixed costs into floating costs.

Pickup & labeling

While we are managing the flow of cargo we can pack and label products to prepare them for direct store deliveries. We can also re-pack and label to adapt to local market situations. Once the products reach your warehouse, you can get them straight onto the shelves.  

(un) loading containers

GEODIS is a specialist in container load optimization, the art of utilizing the full capacity of a container to achieve the best possible transport economy. We offer container loading/unloading inspections to monitor quality of operations and apply container load principles to improve efficiency when unloading and bringing into stock.
