The process of transferring shipments from one mode of transportation to another is known as transloading. At DLS, we are experts in providing our clients with transloading services across countless industries.
One primary reason we utilize transloading services is to minimize expensive per diem charges. Most commonly, you’ll find that transloading is used when containers are picked up from ports then brought into warehouses. Here the shipment will be unloaded and then reloaded into a truck to make it to its final destination.
The Benefit of Transloading Services
The key ingredient to any efficient supply chain is always speed to market. Thankfully, with the help of DLS transloading services, you can help consolidate your products and ship them directly to your final consumer.
Often, storing products at a warehouse can lead to delays and incurred costs. But, transloading helps to eliminate some of these concerns and expedite the speed to market.
Product customizations, such as kitting and labeling at the warehouse facility, can be offered through transloading services. With the state-of-the-art technologies utilized at DLS, we see that transloading services continue to gain momentum in efficiency in the supply chain.
Not surprisingly, transloading services can be extraordinarily complex, depending on your supply chain. It’s common to outsource these services so that your time can be better spent focusing on your business rather than logistics.
