For importers bringing ocean containers to any US port with cargo to be delivering anywhere in the US, transloading and intermodal service is the away to go.  Just by benefiting from the additional cubic capacity that a 53′ domestic containercan offer over its’ 40′ international counterpart is the way to go. Depending on volume by transloading cargo from a 40’ ocean container to 53’ domestic containers one can save using less domestic containers to move the cargo coming in ocean containers, moreover, usually the cost of moving cargo on ocean containers is much higher that moving cargo on domestics 53’, since cargo containers have to be brought back to the port or relocated to a container facility where the steamship line charges the client the relocation fees.
