From ship to shore and rail to truck, transloading gets your freight delivered intact.
Transloading is the transferring of goods from one mode of transportation to another. This most commonly occurs when containers arrive at a port and need to be delivered to points elsewhere. Destuffing a container and placing the goods onto a trailer is ultimately more cost effective for long distance delivery points. This also allows you to minimize your demurrage charges by returning the empty container within allowable time frames and moving the goods separately at any time frame that your customer requires.
Since most items being shipped today are transported in containers, these containers are specifically constructed to be moved from ships directly to a variety of transportation methods. Transporting by rail and ships are the most economical ways to move product but in practice, many items will require a large or small truck to deliver the goods to the final destination. All this is accomplished through transloading.
