Our Eastern Oregon Transloading or Cross Docking Services

Transloading (or Cross Docking)

There are many viable ways to move freight from place to place. Whether it’s by truck, boat, or train, freight is moving all day every day. It isn’t very often that freight moves from a manufacturer straight to the customer, but it happens. Many times, freight moves from a manufacturer to a distributor first, before reaching the customer. Sometimes it travels from a manufacturer on a truck to a distribution warehouse, then onto a boat, then into another warehouse, then back on a truck, then to a brick-and-mortar store. Whatever the case may be, COLO Logistics can help you move your freight from place to place through our transportation and distribution networks. Moving your freight along our networks using different types of transportation is called transloading or cross docking.

Transloading | Cross Docking Can Be a Very Effective and Efficient Mode of Transportation

If you have a large amount of freight in Eastern Oregon that needs to be transported over long distances, or from a manufacturer in Eastern Oregon without rail siding. If you think about the shipping of cars from a manufacturer to a car dealer, it wouldn’t make sense to drive hundreds of cars cross-country, even though it would be possible. The more efficient method would be to load the cars onto a truck at the manufacturer, put them on a train, and ship them to a transloading or cross docking facility in the destination city to be distributed to their local dealers. That’s what we do.

If You Need to Move Your Freight Cross-Country

You have more freight than you have room in your trucks, you may be faced with a choice. Drive your trucks empty on the way back to Eastern Oregon for the second trip or spend time trying to find freight to bring back. COLO Logistics can help you with another option – transloading or cross docking. Using your trucks to drive a much shorter distance to our logistics center, we can move your freight by rail all at once for much cheaper. Transloading or cross docking from Eastern Oregon offers a more fuel and time efficient alternative to transportation by truck.
