Finding Parallels Between Options and Life

How Cross Docking is related to Customer Satisfaction If its decision making organizations have their priorities when it comes to costs and warehousing, and cross docking has to be considered and weighed up since its implementation has many disadvantages. Cross-docking might sound advantageous in reference to the fact that in logistics jargon, anytime an item sits, in-between its intended destination is cost. In reality, there is very little or no handling or storage time considered when cross-docking a product from a suppliers or manufacturing plants distributing items directly to its customers or retain chain, and so less price is paid. There is much management attention, time and planning necessary to make cross-docking operation work effectively which is quite disadvantageous. In other words, prior to its implementation, setting up the cross docking terminal structures and linking them to semi-trailer trucks or railroad cars into outbound trucks with little or no storage in between would already require time and capital not similar to warehousing where for the most part, the job is simply to establish a warehouse, advertise the facility and maintain a good account of its inventory. But to a cross-docking client, one can take the advantage of this facility that sees to it that before they offer anything, they already have a comfortable reliance that the suppliers would deliver those goods to the customer so that the cross-docking terminal will not break-up the entire supply chain like a crumbling domino simply because one item is missing. It is important for cross-docking clients to have speed to grow their organization and to achieve a competitive advantage, so the most important factor here then is the productivity of a supply chain. This is especially true these days since customer satisfaction weighs heavily on an organizations survival. With a reliable supply chain, one can keep customers, otherwise, customers are lost. Two companies selling the same item with the same price, but differing in time that the customer can pick up the item will both provide convenience to a customer but the one that allow the customer to have them much earlier than the other will give the customer more satisfaction. This type of customer satisfaction has its grounds on the organization’s supply chain management.
