Transloading refers to the method of transportation where freight is moved from one mode of transportation to another. Typically, a container will be taken into a facility and transferred to a domestic truckload. Transloading services are recommended when more than one mode of transportation is required for the entire span of shipment. This method is most commonly used on international shipments that require transportation across different types of geographical challenges.
