Weekly Commercial Real Estate Terms

Cross Docks Typically found on Truck Terminals. To have cross docks the building needs to be very narrow, (between 60 to 80 feet wide) and essentially the building is all cross-docks with no columns. Companies like FedEx/DHL or national trucking companies typically occupy buildings with cross docks because of the volume of inventory that is simultaneously incoming & outgoing, i.e., U.S. Mail comes in one side, sorts in the middle and is loaded to go out on the other side. Buildings with cross-docks are typically column free and not heated. See also: Loading Docks, Drive-Ins]]>
