Transloading 101 - A Beginners Guide
By: CLN Solutions
So, what is it exactly?
Transloading refers to the process of transferring a shipment from one means of transport to another.
In other words, changing modes of transportation to final delivery.
This process predominantly occurs during the movement of bulk materials.
When the goods arrive to the port via ocean carrier, they remain in the container until delivered to a warehousing facility. From there the shipment is transloaded from the ocean container onto the truck that will deliver the last mile.
The transloading process is relatively simple in theory, and can save massive amounts of time and storage fees that would otherwise be incurred.
Synonymous terms: Decanting and cross-docking.
*These terms are not always interchangeable with transloading, but it is important to understand that they are often used in paralleled referencing.
