Solution: The Port and proximity of inland water ways allowed Universal to utilize a multi-modal approach. Cargo was moved on several barges to the port of Shreveport. It was unloaded and moved via multi-axle trailers to the destination 80 miles away.
Results: 6.2 million lbs. of rolling stock cleared from port, the destination offloaded and all cargo was received 4 days ahead of required delivery, allowing our customer to utilize inland waterways for 1st time in over 10 years.
