TRANSLOADING SERVICE LEVELS

We specialize in consistent, safe transloading at every one of our terminals. TRANSFLO terminals offer three service levels to accommodate your needs; Premium Service, Value Service and Self Service.

Premium Service Level

  • Provides the truck bill of lading
  • Scales the trucks in and out
  • Verifies right car-right truck

Self Service Level

The Self Service level is only available for dry products and non-hazardous products, pending approval. (Self-loading of liquids or hazardous materials is not permitted.) With Self Service, the product is transferred by a motor carrier, using a self-loading truck. You must supply all equipment and appropriate spill containment, and use experienced, trained personnel who know the safety requirements for the specific loading and unloading operations being performed.
