Associates Warehousing offers a US Customs and Border Protection (CBP)-bonded CFS and examination services. In addition to holding a "superior" food safety rating, its facilities are approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and the US Food and Drug Administration. Handling overweight shipments is also a part of the company's service offerings, Parker said: "We have the trucks and chassis to bring heavy import loads to the warehouse and then distribute accordingly." For savvy volume importers, shipping PhilaPort Logistics capabilities and a close-knit trade community make the Philadelphia region a strong value proposition. ESTABLISHED IN 1976, Trans American Trucking and Warehouse is an asset-based operation in Southfield, New Jersey, and Baltimore, Maryland, both conveniently located an hour and fifteen minutes from the Port of Philadelphia. Trans American offers transportation of everything from standard containers and flatbed freight to oversized out-of-gauge cargo and can accommodate 300,000 pounds over the road. Our fleet consists of flatbeds up to 19 axle trailers. In addition to the trucking operation, Trans American has three full-service warehouses in South Plainfield, New Jersey, and Baltimore. These warehouses offer everything from container stripping to export packaging, along with short- or long-term indoor/outdoor storage. We look forward to serving Philadelphia and surrounding region! Resilience and growth: The local Philadelphia police who escort our oversized shipments during transportation are important partners, and we appreciate their work and collaboration. During the pandemic, we were fortunate to see a rise in business in the Philadelphia region, and we look forward to servicing our customers' needs there as the region continues to stay busy. Labor and workforce Working together to achieve a common goal is essential to success, particularly in the supply chain industry, as any weak link can severely impact operations.The teamwork begins the moment cargo arrives at port — whether longshore personnel working the ship, drivers loading and delivering product to customers, or company executives overseeing the operation, everyone plays an important role. Biggest opportunities for Trans American: The increase in containers flooding the Northeast provides Trans American with the biggest opportunities over the next 12 to 18 months. Although traditionally known for handling over-the-road, heavy-haul freight, our company has successfully met this new demand by clients who need their container freight pulled, stripped, and delivered. This business has become, and will remain, an important aspect of our services. We are able to fulfill these requests with our own fleet of chassis and three warehouses located within the Philadelphia region, handling delivery with our asset-based fleet of trailers.
