Drayage Services & Shipping
Ecology’s Port & Logistics Division is one of the largest and most efficient providers of trucking services to and from the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach. Ecology has complete access to all terminals. Our Port Division fleet is 100% powered by CNG fuel. All of our trucks are 2015 or newer and are both CNG and CARB compliant. In total Ecology has over 600 trucks on the road that are both CNG and Diesel.
Our company understands the importance of expediting time sensitive shipments for our clients by creating a plan aimed at efficient freight movement and controlling costs. We can provide off-peak scheduling and we have a wide variety of equipment to prevent shortages during peak seasons. Ecology can monitor each and every delivery based on your specifications. All of our trucks are emission compliant with the port rules and regulations. Since Ecology also owns and operates its own transfer stations and yards throughout Southern California and near the ports, we can pick up and move containers and freight to and from the port to meet time sensitive shipping and receiving time schedules. Ecology’s Port Transport and Logistics division provides to our customers the best options in handling freight to and from the ports at the most economical rate.
The drayage division provides supply chain transportation of containers to and from the 13 terminals at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Our 10 acre facility in Wilmington, AZ offers the opportunity for us to pull containers from the port, store them short term if needed, and then deliver them to their destination when needed.
This gives customers the ability to control just in time deliveries and inventories on imported products. The advantage for companies looking to control Just in Time (JIT) deliveries on imported products is in inventory turns, cash flow, and warehouse space.
In the same manner, we can also deliver containers to the port of Los Angeles when they are scheduled for loading. Getting freight to the port to be loaded at the assigned time is a critical issue for most companies.
Our 10 acre facility in Wilmington allows for us to move containers already loaded for export and store them short term near the port and transport over at the scheduled time for loading.
Break bulk loads and bulk freight can also be handled by Ecology. Typically bulk break loads are hauled in containers or bulk trailers such as hoppers, end dumps, walking trailers, and belt trailers. Anything not packaged is considered bulk freight.
Typical bulk loads that can be handled by containers or bulk trailers are grain, fertilizer, metals, ingredients, etc. Sometimes bulk loads or bulk freight are not able to be shipped in containers or bulk trailers and require heavy haul equipment to be used.
Ecology can also handle bulk loads and bulk freight that require heavy haul equipment. We transport these loads via our Heavy Haul division.
