South Atlantic Companies offers a complete range of warehousing services including Cross Docking, Inventory Management, Contract Warehousing, Manufacturing Support Services, Reverse Logistics, Value Added Fulfillment, and Vendor Managed Inventory.
Cross docking is a management method used to quickly combine shipments from different sources and maximize savings when it comes to outbound transportation. Cross docking removes the inventory storage capacity of a warehouse while still allowing space to deliver its shipping and consolidation functions. The concept is to transfer incoming shipments straight to outgoing trailers without having to store them in-between. Shipments usually spend less than 12 hours at our warehouse and sometimes less than a couple of hours.
In a traditional warehouse, materials are accepted from vendors and stored on pallet racks or industrial shelving. When a customer purchases the product, a worker picks it from the rack and sends it to the required destination. In a cross dock, goods coming in from the vendor have a customer assigned already, so employees only need to move the goods from the inbound trailer to the outbound trailer on its way to the destination.
Inventory management often is the biggest challenge when managing any company's supply chain. It's difficult to balance efficiently delivering merchandise to customers while operating the supply chain.
If you are finding it hard to balance your inventory management, consider outsourcing it to South Atlantic, a third party logistics (3PL) provider. We can have you up and running fast with various systems to assist you in identifying inventory requirements. We also help you set targets and offer replenishment and inventory statuses.
At South Atlantic we offer warehousing to store all merchandise if needed. Your orders come to us and we provide it all from start to finish with documentation and reports.

Contract warehousing has many advantages. It offers businesses and entrepreneurs a variety of services created to handle their packing, inventorying, and shipping needs. Using a warehouse management system, we streamline a number of the different processes required by a business like palletizing and labeling; making it easy for companies to focus on other areas demanding their attention.
