Explore the Advantages of Beyond Warehousing’s Transloading Services in Kansas City

Our transloading services in Kansas City are designed to streamline the movement of goods, ensuring efficient transitions between modes of transportation.

Proximity to Rail & BNSF Intermodal Facility

Located within a mile of the BNSF intermodal facility, our strategic location in Edgerton, KS facilitates an efficient transition from rail to warehouse to truck. This proximity creates several cost-saving opportunities, making Beyond Warehousing the ideal choice for companies shipping into Kansas City. In conjunction with our other Kansas City warehouses, Beyond Warehousing is near all four Class 1 rails (BNSF, CPKC, NS, and UP) in the area.

Overweight Corridor Advantage

Beyond Warehousing capitalizes on the unique advantages of Logistics Park Kansas City in Edgerton. The park features an overweight corridor, allowing for the movement of containers up to 58,000 lbs. to our warehouses with no additional fees compared to a standard 40,000-lb container. This is particularly beneficial to importers of heavy, dense products who often weigh out and pay to ship empty space.

Cost-Effective Drayage

Beyond Warehousing’s positioning near the rail minimizes drayage expenses. With our network of transportation partners, Beyond Warehousing can coordinate drayage to our facilities or provide a referral to clients who prefer to coordinate their own transportation.

Food-Grade Facilities for Quality Assurance

Our facilities in the logistics park are food-grade certified. This commitment ensures that your products are handled in environments that meet the highest safety and sanitation standards, providing peace of mind for you and your customers.

Benefits of Transloading Services

Transloading allows for a smooth transition between different modes of transportation, such as rail, truck, or ocean freight. This flexibility enables businesses to optimize their logistics strategy by choosing the most cost-effective and timely transportation methods for their goods.
By leveraging the expertise of a 3PL provider for transloading services, businesses can reduce overall logistics costs. Transloading allows for the consolidation of shipments and the use of more economical transportation modes, leading to cost savings in transportation and storage.
