transloading
 n.— «“If you’re going to ship something less than 400 or 500 miles, it probably makes more sense to ship it on a truck,” Pitcher said, which is done by transloading. Transloading is the term for shipping products by rail, then by truck, then on to the customer.» —“Galesburg key location for BNSF” by John R.
