DELIVERY SOLUTIONS WITH A DIFFERENCE
Cross-Docking at the Crack of Dawn
If servicing Adelaide from interstate on a NEXT DAY basis is important to your business, then we have the solutions to help.
Our cross-dock and distribution solution for interstate customers sees most linehaul unloaded as they arrive in Adelaide at any time of the night, so the freight is available to our fleet for metropolitan delivery first thing in the morning.
This lets us deal with any specific requirements of the receiver as well as reconcile the freight unloaded at the first opportunity, meaning deliveries as a standard are completed by 2pm (including Outer Metro Areas). It also addresses some of the issues that linehaul drivers often have elsewhere of having to queue for the gates to open, while being on a gazetted b-double route is critical to avoiding the need to split trailers.
The Cochrane's cross-dock solution allows interstate shippers to partner with a single provider for all of South Australia, without requiring a fixed cost infrastructure or management challenge. Our significant metropolitan fleet has both the capacity and the vehicle configurations to deal with almost any requirement, and we actively manage any timeslot expectations and reverse logistics that may be entailed.
