When goods need to be transferred from one mode of transportation to another, sometimes it can get tricky. That’s where transloading comes in handy, especially when more than one mode of transport needs to be used and efficiency needs to be upheld. How can you maximize the benefits of transloading on your supply chain to save time and money?
Don’t brush time aside
Of course, with the supply chain time is NEVER brushed aside. But, when you incorporate transloading services it’s a good idea to plan for more time than what you think you will need to get the job done. The size of a load is like a puzzle that will be broken down, transferred and handled to find the perfect fit. A cushion of time around this part of the supply chain can help accommodate and prepare for surprises.
Choosing the right transloading partner
Many 3PL companies offer transloading/crossdocking services, but it’s important to do your homework so you can find the perfect fit for your shipment. What is your intermodal plan? What region are you shipping to? Research thoroughly and talk with different companies to see what they can offer and how they can fully execute transloading services so you don’t lose money.
