    Transloading as a Tool to Accelerate Cargo Movements During Heightened Congestion

    With ships backed up at anchor, cargo taking longer to flow through marine terminals, and extensive rail delays holding up inland movements, shippers have had to take matters into their own hands to accelerate their supply chains. One way they did that over the past year was to expand transloading activities. Devanning containers and transloading into 53-foot trucks is a well-known strategy, utilized for years by shippers, but it took on new relevance during the pandemic, and many importers now see it as a savior during the pandemic disruption. This session will dig into the transloading concept, explain when and for whom it makes the most sense, and answer the following questions:

    o Why the new relevance?

    o What are the advantages?

    o What are the tradeoffs?

    o What factors do shippers need to consider?

    o How can you gain pop-up capacity?

    o How do you build long-term transloading opportunity?
