What is Transloading in Greater Vancouver?
Transloading is the practice of transferring goods from one mode of transportation to another in order to save your business time and money. Transloading services are a critical link between ocean-to-road freight transfers of pallets or large cargo to destinations within BC or cross-border to the US. In Greater Vancouver, the transloading process usually involves transporting a 40-foot shipping container from the Port of Vancouver to a freight-handling facility where the cargo can be transferred to a domestic container or flatbed trailer to continue the journey by truck.
Our Transloading Facility
Our facility, located just outside Vancouver, has both indoor overhead cranes and outdoor transloading equipment. Our specialized team can handle anything from standard palletized freight to large pipes, machinery, equipment and unique materials. You can rest assured that at Lotus, we have the experience to safely and efficiently move your freight.
