Container Transloading Logistics Services
There are times when a shipping container has to take several modes of transportation to get to its destination, such as a warehouse. It may be loaded from a port to travel to a rail yard, then be shipped from rail for part of the trip before it is placed onto a truck.
When it comes to container transloading services, you want a company that has the regional fleet available to move your shipment based on your schedule. Learn more about transloading logistics and how JYC Trucking has the capabilities to get your containers to their destinations on time.
What Is Transloading?
Transloading is a logistical strategy that relies on using assets to transport shipping containers using several modes of transportation during a single trip. This strategy often entails an importer acquiring a shipment from a global manufacturer as the shipment arrives at a chosen port by ocean vessel.
The container is then loaded onto a trailer as the truck driver moves it for a short distance to another mode of transportation, such as another port or railyard. The container is moved from the trailer and onto the rail car or boat. Then the shipment goes to another location where it is offloaded and placed onto another truck as it is moved to a warehouse, distribution center, retailer or other destination.
Benefits of Transloading
Importers take advantage of transloading transportation logistics when streamlining their supply chains. There are times when moving a shipment through numerous modes of transportation can speed up shipment deliveries and reach warehouses that are in remote locations. It is also convenient when you plan to deconsolidate goods from the trailers and redistribute the goods into other containers based on their destinations. Then the goods can travel along the best routes in time.
