Ocean & Rail Container Transport

 

Ships and trains move billions of tons of commercial goods throughout the US and the world each year. Companies generally transport these goods in large shipping containers with standardized dimensions that allow them to be easily loaded onto ships and attached to rail cars.

In today’s economy, shipping containers are responsible for carrying the majority of our country’s and the world’s goods. These shipping containers are also designed to fit securely onto chassis, so that trucking companies like Bridgetown Trucking can deliver them to and from ocean shipping yards and rail yards, directly to you.

 

Fast, Efficient Pickup and Delivery

When it comes to ocean and rail transportation, staying on schedule at every step of the process is crucial. That’s why you need a trucking company you can trust to get your goods where they need to be quickly and economically.

Here’s how the process generally works:

  1. An empty container is delivered to the customer for loading.
  2. A trucking company like Bridgetown Trucking picks up the loaded shipping container and delivers it to a local container yard for loading onto a ship or rail car.
  3. The container makes its journey via ocean or rail.
  4. A trucking company like Bridgetown Trucking retrieves the goods and transports them to their final destination. 

Since 1999, Bridgetown Trucking has been moving containers for companies of all sizes including Fortune 500 companies as well as smaller businesses. We’re well known throughout Oregon and Washington, and the St. Louis, Missouri area for our integrity and flexibility in accommodating our clients’ needs.
