Transloading is the process of moving material from one form of transportation to another. For example, imagine you are bringing in some building supplies from the east coast. You discover you could be cutting transportation costs by using rail instead of trucks, but you don’t have rail access on your property. This is where Metro comes in. Your material gets shipped to Metro Transloading where it is unloaded from the rail and reloaded for delivery by truck to your doorstep, saving you time and money. We also offer storage of material for later delivery.
