With e-commerce sales forecasted to hit $385B in 2023 in the US, the landscape is evolving rapidly. Businesses navigating this growth are leveraging transloading to enhance their fulfillment operations. By transferring goods between transport modes, transloading can drive down shipping costs and increase efficiency.

At STG Logistics, transloading is an integral part of our comprehensive end-to-end logistics solution. From port to door, our services are designed to accommodate the changing demands of today’s dynamic e-commerce environment. Cargo owners and logistics companies interface their inventory management systems and our technology stack, setting the stage before the cargo’s arrival for prioritization, segregation and rebuilding instructions. This is also the time to set the stage for the prioritization of what needs to move and evaluation of short or medium storage for future order fulfillment. 

Our expansive network of warehouses and distribution centers, strategically located across the United States, allows us to swiftly transload goods regardless of arriving modality, enhancing supply chain responsiveness.

Transloading with STG Logistics brings distinct benefits for e-commerce businesses:

  1. Reduced shipping costs: Our transloading services enable businesses to consolidate shipments from multiple countries or domestic manufacturers, leveraging more cost-efficient transportation methods and ultimately driving down shipping expenses.
  1. Increased operational efficiency: By minimizing the handling of goods close to the final mile, transloading services enhance the overall efficiency of fulfillment operations.
  2. Flexibility: Our transloading capabilities offer businesses the latitude to choose the most suitable transport mode for their specific needs, enhancing adaptability in a fast-paced market.

In addition to these, transloading can also help businesses to:

  1. Improve their supply chain visibility: Transloading can help businesses to improve their supply chain visibility by providing them with real-time information about the location of their goods. This can help businesses to make better decisions about their inventory and to improve their customer service.
  1. Reduce their carbon footprint: By consolidating shipments, businesses can reduce the number of trucks that are needed to transport goods, which can help to reduce their carbon footprint.
