In March 2013, TSD opened a transloading facility in Texarkana, TX. The facility allows for carbon black shipped in super sacks from other countries to be transloaded into hopper trailers. The facility is the only one of its kind in the south-central region of the US, bringing value to carbon black consumers west of the Mississippi. The facility has over 65,000 square feet of optional storage capacity, a truck dock, rail spur, onsite staff and drop yard. Custom reporting and inventory management are available as well.
In November of 2012, TSD introduced 33 new trucks with the ability to haul a payload of 48,500 pounds per carbon black shipment. The new trucks haul 13 percent more than the current payload. Each truck is equipped with a sleeper compartment to allow for long haul deliveries. TSD has partnered with select carbon black suppliers in the first phase of the Lightweight Initiative.
The heavier payload will allow for delivering more materials with fewer trips. Few trips will reduce the company’s carbon footprint and save on fuel. The benefits to the customer are reduced unloading times and lower delivery costs. TSD plans to continue the second phase of the Lightweight Initiative in July of 2013 by adding additional new trucks to the fleet.
TSD’s Freight Management Solutions (FMS) software cuts shipping costs dramatically by optimizing the alignment of shipper and carrier networks. On average, FMS customers save 10 percent of transportation costs by optimizing their inbound, outbound and inter site movements. TSD will manage everything from procurement to optimization to execution. The FMS software uses sate-of-the-art technology to integrate with customer’s current software. It allows for web-based freight visibility and customization to fit the needs of each company.
