cross-docking
 n.— «Cost savings are huge in Wal-Mart’s distribution and logistic functions as it employs a method called cross-docking. Products are received on one side of the warehouse and leave out of the other side, virtually eliminating the storage of goods. A form of just-in-time distribution, merchandise flows through the distribution center to the customer in the shortest time possible.» —“Can Your Company Compete Against Wal-Mart?” by Adrienne Selko Industry Week May 2, 2007.
