Often, companies experience unnecessary bottlenecks when moving raw materials and dry goods from one location to their final destination. This is especially true when goods are moved by rail or ocean. The logistics of unloading and delivering cargo from these modes of transport to the owner is most efficient when transload operations are used as a logistics solution. The productivity and efficiency of your business is enhanced when it depends on a service that can successfully unload, warehouse and route your commodity, from end-to-end.
Transload services take on the the business of receiving your freight from the host railroad. Whether the load is transported by ocean container, boxcar or flatcar, arrangements for unloading by crane or forklift to safely remove the contents is the first phase of this process. Next, the provision for short-term or long-term storage is made available to house your cargo until the customer requests delivery. With access to both dedicated and shared warehousing facilities, CWI Logistics has the flexibility to accommodate ambient storage for dry goods, or temperature controlled spaces for perishables.
