Flexible, Transloading Services saves shipping cost and time. Transloading is the process of moving cargo from one form of transportation to another. For example, if a manufacturer is transporting their freight from their Plant to a distribution center they may start with a truck, then transfer their freight to rail to save cost for long-haul transportation. Why implement Intermodal Transportation Methods?
U.S Port Services announces the addition of a New Heavy Lift Forklift Truck, the Linde HT160 with 35,000 lbs. lift capacity for heavy and out-of-gauge cargo to our fleet. We can handle Project Cargo for cross docking, transloading, container drayage, truck brokerage and warehouse storage/distribution. Our customer service and warehousing teams will handle your shipments in a safe and secure manner.
US Port Services has warehouse space available in the Savannah market. As of September 1st, we have approximately 110,000 sq feet available. So, we have a little relief for a struggling area.
Fighting Drayage Issues
US Port Services is smack in the middle of drayage industry issues. There are still a great many problems, but there are a few bright spots. The biggest issues arise from the traditional delivery process that has existed for years and is still in place.
In order to keep pace with industry demands, US Port Services is ready for mandates to use the new ELD tracking that replaces paper logbooks used since the Great Depression. “Awareness of the issues and the flexibility to adapt to changing conditions have always been the hallmark of our company” said David Poole, president of U.S. Port Services. “And because we are part of the Evans Network, we had to be ready quickly.”
The American Trucking Association (ATA) supports the mandate. It is apt to place a premium on shippers to review their own routes and shipping schedules to assure ELD compliance.
