Equipment shortages can prevent your shipments from arriving on time and cost you a fortune in storage fees. An effective transloading strategy can resolve these problems and ensure that your cargo doesn’t stop in large-scale distribution hubs. At South Star Logistics, we provide best-in-class transportation services for manufacturers like you.

We have years of experience developing transloading strategies to ensure that your shipments are always on the move. Whether you need to scale your shipping operations or optimize your delivery-to-profit cycle, we have the resources and technology to achieve outstanding results.


What Is Transloading and What are The Benefits?

Transloading is the process of moving your products from one mode of transportation to another. Sometimes, transferring your cargo to various modes of transportation along the way is also necessary, depending on the resources available in the supply chain. A practical transloading strategy is essential for managing your high-volume or high-velocity goods without delays.

Consider the following example of transloading:
  • A retailer schedules a delivery from a factory overseas, shipped in ocean containers.
  • Once the ship docks, it will unload these containers, move them to a warehouse where the product is transferred into freight trucks for transportation to the retailer’s specified destination.
When you choose our transloading strategies, you can expect the following benefits:
  • Reduced Shipping Costs: Transloading consolidates vehicles, saving you money on transit and distribution.
  • Versatility: Transloading allows you to monitor your products in transit down to the minute. This way, you can reorganize goods to distribution hubs in locations where customer demand is high, fulfilling orders faster and stocking inventory.
  • Route Planning and Efficiency: We can help you transport your goods directly to customers using our distribution ports as a temporary storage facility between transit. This method allows you to save money by bypassing your warehouse.
