Pre-Distribution vs. Post-Distribution Cross-Docking

There are two fundamental forms of cross-docking: Pre-Distribution and Post-Distribution. In Pre-Distribution, Goods are unloaded, sorted, and repackaged in accordance with pre-determined distribution instructions. Moreover, before the products are left by the seller, the customer is identified.

The sorting is postponed until the appropriate facility and consumers are selected, depend on requests. During post-distribution, this ensures that products will take a while longer to distribute or cross-dock, but manufacturers and suppliers will use the extra time to choose smarter and more knowledgeable ways to move their goods on the basis of in-store inventories, pricing forecasts, and point-of-sale patterns.
