The door-to-door transloading service provided by The World Group will ensure that your shipment moves seamlessly through our domestic network to our Columbus, Ohio Container Transload Facility (CTF), where it will be moved from the railcar into a truck and delivered to its destination. This provides you with rail accessibility without a large capital investment and access to numerous value-added services. This is essential for companies that do not have a rail line into their facilities, but can handle and store large quantities at their facilities. The bottomline is that it allows you to experience the convenience of using individual railcar service without having to have a rail served facility. Services include:

  • International and domestic warehousing, distribution and transportation services
  • Domestic truck brokerage
  • LTL and FTL
  • Private intermodal rail services
  • High speed crossdocking
  • Bulk transloading
  • Heavy lift and out-of-gauge services
  • Inventory control and global supply chain visibility
  • Value-added services, including labeling, wrapping, reworking, picking/packing, sub-assembly, packaging, palletizing, physical inventory, repackaging, and kitting
