Transloading & Deconsolidation
For those importing into the Midwest via the BNSF Intermodal at Logistics Park Kansas City, Beyond Warehousing is a great option for transloading or deconsolidation. Located less than a mile from the intermodal, drayage costs are relatively little.
Being in the LPKC heavyweight corridor, containers up to 58,000 lbs can be moved to Beyond Warehousing with no additional fees compared to a standard 40,000 lb container. The Beyond team can inspect your inventory, palletize, and consolidate onto relatively fewer 53’ trailers to head to their next destination (often saving thousands of dollars per year in total landed costs).
Sometimes more than one location is needed to serve your customers’ needs efficiently. That’s where deconsolidation comes in. Beyond Warehousing can inspect your containers, just like transloading. But with deconsolidation, the contents are broken down into smaller shipments by SKU or purchase order for distribution and loaded on various trailers or containers to be transported to the appropriate destinations. This hub-and-spoke model is ideal for clients where the end customer is spread across a wider geographic area or when using a 3PL network.
