Since 2020, transloading has grown significantly in popularity among shippers, but much of the new business was about getting freight to distribution centers quickly, a speed-to-market play. Lost in the shuffle were more traditional benefits of transloading: converting four 40-foot containers into three domestic containers, or five 40-footers into four domestic containers. Such a conversation may save a shipper money, but also increase the productivity of a distribution center with more cargo going into each dock door. As supply chains normalize from the frenetic pace of the last two-plus years, how can shippers rethink transloading and reintroduce some of the traditional benefits back into their supply chains? Where does transloading make sense and where does international intermodal have an advantage? This session will feature representatives from companies that are investing in transloading on the East, Gulf, and West coasts who will discuss potential new solutions for shippers.
