With our Metro Detroit terminal that is served by the Canadian National (CN) railway, Sterling companies can reduce your transportation costs of bulk liquids such as petroleum and specialty chemicals. For your transloading needs – transferring bulk liquids from rail tankcar to road tanker truck and/or road tanker truck to rail tankcar – contact Sterling companies today for transload services. 

Transloading Services: Promising reduced distribution costs by greatly reduced freight costs using truck & rail

If your bulk liquid supply point is over 250 miles from the Metro Detroit area, and your bulk liquid customer is within 250 miles of the Metro Detroit area, then transloading is worth considering. For example, if your bulk liquid supply point is on the Gulf Coast or in Texas, we can rail from Texas within two weeks, transload at our Metro Detroit terminal within three working days, and then offer same-day road tanker truck delivery of up to 90,000 pounds of liquid product and up to 45,000 pounds to your customer(s) within Michigan and Ontario, Canada.

Transloading with the Sterling Companies will offer fast, seamless, reduced border-crossing time and lower-fee delivery at greatly reduced freight costs.

With a western Canada or upper Midwest bulk liquid supply point and direct Canadian National (CN) railway service to our Detroit terminal, we feature transloading for same day-delivery by road tanker truck within 250 miles to Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Toledo, Chicago, Detroit and Ontario, Canada.
