What is Transloading ?

Transloading refers to the process of transporting containers, cargo, or freight from one method of transportation (vessel, airplane) to another (railcar, truck-bed). Transloading is recommended when more than one mode of transportation is required for the entire duration of the shipment. It is most commonly used when shipping internationally, and across different types of geographical challenges. The entire process will sometimes call for a limited and short amount of warehousing, on a need by need basis.

Key Benifits


The use of different modes of transportation allow for flexibility. Transport your cargo anywhere with any method that works best for your route and business.

The entire process is simplified through proper planning and management. Define routes and methods beforehand to move your shipments quickly and orderly.

Because transloading is a much more efficient form of transportation, it helps reduce domestic freight spend. Consolidated loads and flexible modes of transport also allow for lower costs.
