Transloading
Transloading is the process of transferring a shipment from one mode of transportation to another. It’s employed when one mode cannot be used for the entire trip which is common in international shipping (from the truck trailer to the ocean container for example).

Overseas manufacturing operations are on the rise and because of this, so are ocean imports. When the cargo arrives at the port, it will need to be unloaded, palletized (if applicable) and then transferred to a domestic container for transport either directly to the customer’s door or to the rail terminal for intermodal transport.

The benefits of transloading are reduction of cost, speed, and consolidation (particularly for truckload). Transloading can involve additional services such as labeling, kitting, and cargo inspection before it is delivered to its final destination.

Blanket Wrap
Add an additional layer of protection by using freight blankets or padding to protect goods that are easily damaged. Blanket wrapping reduces the cost of packaging and eliminates packaging disposal issues after arrival.

Generally, blanket wrapped freight will require more attention while transporting. We also offer you loading and unloading plans involving additional laborers, liftgate vans, straps, pads, load bars, and decking to reduce the risk of damage to your freight.

Commonly Blanket Wrapped Freight
  • Computer Equipment
  • Medical Devices
  • Fine Art
  • Office Equipment
  • Furniture
  • Fitness Equipment
  • Appliances
  • Store Fixtures

Drayage & Port Services
Trucking is regularly used to connect ocean and rail portions of an international intermodal shipment. Commonly referred to as ”drayage" or "cartage", dedicated carriers will run between the ocean ports, rail terminals and shipping docks to transport the freight a short distance.

Shippers Interest Cargo
Cargo losses happen in all modes. Some shippers choose to rely on the carrier's insurance, but if something should happen to your cargo, you'll most likely seek full compensation for the value of your loss. In those circumstances, relying on the carrier’s insurance can have its drawbacks - it's based on liability, usually has limits and exclusions and the amount of insurance they carry may be insufficient.
