Transload

Transloading is the process of transferring a shipment from one mode of transportation to another. It is most commonly employed when one mode cannot be used for the entire trip, as for instance when goods must be shipped internationally from one inland point to another.

ISSUES FACING CUSTOMERS

Ocean Carriers to Consider Shutting Down Intermodal Points

Container lines are warning that they may be forced to end intermodal service to numerous East Coast and Midwest cities if they are not able to adjust rates to reflect the rising cost of fuel and the cost associated with poor asset utilization and higher fees at rail yards and ramp locations.

Elimination of Mini-Land Bridge Rail from West Coast Ports

The harsh reality of the ocean transportation industry today is that carriers cannot continue to offer service at a loss, and as a result, service offerings will continue to decrease.
