What is Cross Dock?
AAFES cross dock takes individual store orders and combines
them into purchase orders that are shipped to AAFES warehouses.
The preferred process, called XD2, changes the PO format adding
SDQs (destination quantity), which then change the ASN (advanced
ship notice) and the UCC128 labels. Cross dock orders are
generated mechanically; there are no back orders, no late
shipments, and no substitutions. There are no minimum order
quantities for participating facilities. Suppliers with a 90% or
better fill rate and an ASN accuracy rate of 99.5% or better by
line are encouraged to participate.
