Freight Container and Rail Service
In many cases, companies can reduce transportation expenses by shipping via rail service to cover long distances. However, not all end customers have stores or plants that are rail-served and not all customers purchase railcar-sized orders in bulk. By cross docking goods at Morton Avenue Warehouse’s distribution center, companies can still reap the cost-saving benefits of rail transportation and meet customers’ delivery requirements.
Our facilities provide cross docking services for freight containers shipped to the US from domestic and international origins. Containers are unloaded and product are sorted, palletized or packaged according to customer specification before re-loading into domestic trailers for LTL or truckload shipment. Morton Avenue Warehouse can provide drayage services to retrieve containers from intermodal yards.
