In logistics, Door-to-Door (DTD) service refers to the movement of cargo from its point of origin (Shipper) to the destination (IE: Consignee), while generally remaining on the same piece of equipment and avoiding multiple transactions, transloading, and cross-docking. For movements of goods within a single country, Door-to-Door normally refers to a single movement of cargo on one mode of transport and without any interim storage. For international shipments, DTD normally refers to multiple movements, including a border crossing, while the cargo remains secure on one piece of equipment (trailer) until safely delivered at destination.
How do customers benefit?
- Single Transaction
- Door-to-Door service is generally associated with a single transaction in which the logistics provider assumes responsibility for the cargo during the entire journey
- Save Time
- Door-to-Door service streamlines the process for the customer, provides a single point of contact, and allows customers to focus on other aspects of their business, leaving the many stages of logistics to the professionals
- Avoid Damage and Freight Claims
- Door-to-Door service avoids Transloading and Cross-Docking, eliminating the need to move cargo from one trailer to another, reducing the possibility of cargo damage and claims
