Logistics 4.0 – faster thanks to agile logistics

Anchor Navigation

How would it be if your consignments in the logistics center were not only verified for quality and completeness, but also compiled with goods from other suppliers for the convenience of each recipient and re-packaged for onward carriage? Cross-docking at Swiss Post provides you with these benefits. It helps you simplify your logistics considerably and ideally outsource your temporary storage facilities.


  • You can entrust the entire goods flow to a single partner – Swiss Post – without having to handle the goods yourself once.
  • With cross-docking and an electronic goods flow information system, you can even do without warehousing.
  • The goods reach end-consumers more quickly as we process them on our premises and they do not need to be transported to you from our platform and back again.
  • You can have nothing more to do with the entire logistics operation and focus on your core competencies.
  • You don’t need to gear your (preparation) storage capacities towards rarely used peaks.

Here’s how it works

  1. Your goods – some of which originate from various locations – arrive at our logistics center.
