What is transloading?

Transloading is a logistics service that involves transferring cargo from one mode of transportation to another without the need for storage in between. This process typically occurs at a warehouse or distribution hub, where cargo is received and then moved forward using a different mode of transportation. One example of this could be a shipping container that is received at a facility and then the cargo is transferred to trucks for onward delivery.
