Cross Dock Services
Dandy Cooling Company operates Cross Dock Services as a consolidation company. We manage the consolidation operations for “The Kroger Company” at our Salinas and Yuma facilities.

Our Cross Dock Program offers many benefits to you and your company:

  • Reduces operating cost by decreasing storage, handling, and inventory
  • Helps free up your space
  • We consolidate multiple shipments and get the product where you need it to be- faster!
  • We can ship produce from one location to many companies

All Cross Dock orders loading at dandy cooling facilities require that an appointment be made prior to arriving at the facilities.
