 Transshipment OUR SERVICES

IP Logistics creates efficient and flexible supply chains for customers. This enables transshipments to be processed in a fast, cost-effective and efficient manner.

The transhipment of containers at a container port or terminal can be defined as the number (or proportion of) containers, possibly expressed in TEU, of the total container flow that is handled at the port or terminal and (after a temporariliy storage in the stack) transferred to another ship to reach their destinations. The exact definition of transhipment may differ between ports, mostly depending on the inclusion of inland water transport (barges operating on canals and rivers to the hinterland) . The definition of transhipment may:

  • include only seaborne transfers (i.e. a change to another international deepsea container ship)/li>
  • include both seaborne and inland waterway ship transfers (sometimes indicated as water-to-water transhipment). Most coastal container ports in China have a large proportion of riverside 'transhipment' to the hinterland.

In both cases, a single, unique, transhipped container is counted twice in the port performance, since is it is handled twice by the waterside cranes (separate unloading from arriving ship A, waiting in the stack, and loading onto departing ship B).



Transloading facilities

Transloading is the process of transferring a shipment from one mode of transportation to another. It is most commonly employed when one mode cannot be used for the entire trip, as for instance when goods must be shipped internationally from one inland point to another. Such a trip might require transport by truck to an airport, then by airplane overseas, and thence to another truck at its destination; or it might involve bulk material (such as coal) loaded to rail at the mine, and then tran sferred to ship at a port. Transloading is also required at railroad break of gauge points since the equipment between lines is not compatible.
