Transloading is a shipping term that refers to the process of moving a shipment from one mode of transport to another form.
Transloading has become a standard method for when a container is picked up from port, brought to a warehouse, unloaded, and then reloading the cargo into a truck for final delivery. This method has increased in part due to international trade and the growth of internet commerce.
If a shipment is going to multiple locations, a “transload fee” is applied to cover the labor for de-consolidation at a warehouse, palletizing the freight and reloading onto trucks.
