LTL Transportation is constantly in need of a speedier mode of transport from beginning to end. There is a way for it to go faster. That answer lies with Cross Docks. Cross Docks allow for multiple trucks to be loaded with inbound cargo for outbound transportation. Think of cross-docking as having a facilitator for your cargo before it reaches its destination for greater speed.
