In the logistics sector, we may find people and companies with difficult to ship freight. This post will be used to describe the categories of difficult-to-ship freight along with how we were able to help our customers with their cargoes.
Hazmat Transload in LA
We have a special project from a customer in Los Angeles that needed transloading services for Hazmat 6.1 (poisonous freight) which is something not all warehouses with hazmat certification are able to handle. We have received already 20 containers since last year, unload 19 regular pallets, store from some weeks and then the customer will pick them all together, we have even needed to rebuild pallets, dump some product as it arrived wet and leaking from origin, our team is equipped and able to handle all inconveniences during the job.

Cargo to be loaded on 4×40’FR
We received one request from one of our valued customers willing to load 4×40’FRs in Houston, each piece weighted 50,000lbs each with dims of 126x100x115inche each. We needed special equipment for these to be handled so we needed to schedule a crane to be on site by the time the trucker arrived with the freight to the warehouse. We coordinated it with our customer however we faced some difficulties such as, steamship lines moving the cutoff dates, the shipper not having the freight ready on time etc. we finally managed to have these loaded on time and ready to ship. managed to have these loaded on time and ready to ship.
Air Project transload
One of the big projects we also had to work in was some big, crated machinery pieces that needed transloading as the airport was not able to load them in 53’trailers however the consignee would only be able to unload from 53’trailers. We had to pick up from the airport on Flatbed trucks, take them to the warehouse and then schedule 53’trailers with swing doors, load the freight inside and deliver under an appt to the site, they needed to be on a specific date as these pieces were for some machinery and the engineers came from abroad to the US so it was a very time sensitive case.
Computer graphic cards to Hong Kong
When a shipment has a high value there is always a risk that something could happen to the cargo and lost millions of dollars. So, it is important to hire a CARGO INSURANCE, we provide affordable but comprehensive cargo insurance to give owners peace of mind when shipping.
Recently, we insured a high-value shipment of Computer graphic cards and Memory cards from Hong Kong to St George UT, with a commercial value of $6.000.000 USD in 18 pallets. We insured it successfully and without claims.
We have handled very fragile commodities to insure. One of our current customers is shipping Custom Glass Fixtures with a commercial value of $5.000.000 USD from NY to CO, packed in wooden crates. We’ve insured this commodity several times, we have a lot of experience.
