World Trade Distribution offers integrated container trucking, drayage and pickup/delivery services for any containers or loose cargo. Our trucking fleet has been handling drayage needs for Houston’s Marine Terminals and rail ways for the past 30 years. Import and export transportation and container haulage services for flat bed trailers, open tops, standard and high cube containers, as well as ISO tanks are always handled with the utmost in care and efficiency. We have an extensive fleet of tri-axle chassis for heavy containers and our trucking fleet permitted with the Super Heavy Permit issued by the State of Texas which allows us to “heavy haul” containers and cargo 5% over legal gross weight limit and 10% over legal axle weight limit.
Our in house trucking department runs over 30 trucks daily. Local drays or out of town pickups/deliveries are all managed in house. FCL and LTL (or LCL) shipments are NEVER held for delayed weekend consolidations and are shipped daily. Our first priority at World Trade is your freight and we uphold this standard consistently throughout every facet of our business.
Project cargo transportation services are also available. Pipe, oversized pumps, storage tanks, and other break bulk pieces are all heavy / out-of-gauge cargos we handle on a regular basis. Tri-axles, flat racks, open tops and other specialized equipment are available for requiring cargos. Our vast, all-concrete storage yard in conjunction with our trucking fleet allows us to provide flexible service packages that are customized to fit your cargos needs and your company’s budget.
World Trade has interchange agreements for intermodal drayage with the UPRR and BNSF Railroads as well as all steamship lines calling on the Houston Port terminals as member of the UIIA (Uniform Intermodal Interchange and Facilities Access Agreement).
All World Trade trucks are customs bonded to allow for uninterrupted movement of containers or freight from rail or terminal to our facility while clearance or other bonded warehouse requirements are in process. This could include PTT (Permit to Transfer), General Order (GO), CES, Warehouse Entry freight and other In Bond freight. World Trade also provides bonded intermodal drayage / transport to warehouses at inland and port cities or along the Mexican border, i.e. Laredo, Brownsville, Del Rio, Harlingen and El Paso.
