Domestic International Logistics
Interco partners with on-site Madison Cartage to provide seamless domestic international logistics services for our suppliers and customers. Most of all, the Madison Interco staffs have more than 75 years combined in domestic freight management and brokering specializing in recycled material. In addition, Madison owns and operates its own fleet of trucks providing seamless and cost-effective intermodal drayage services to all rail ramps in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
Rather, the Interco staff through coordination with Madison ensures coordinated loads. As a result, they schedule and pick up the loads on time. The importance of packing lists and scale tickets in the recycling and scrap metals and electronics industry cannot be overstated. The Interco staff will coordinate loads to be documented, picked up, and weighed. In addition, they ensure the loads travel safely. Furthermore, they deliver all loads with all the requisite industry and DOT forms and paperwork. Most noteworthy, they complete, document, and present the forms in a professional and timely manner.
Interco also handles all inbound and outbound ocean freight container shipments for its customers and suppliers. Finally, the Madison Interco staff will book and execute the container shipments with the ocean freighters and railroads. Hence, the staff will advise if on-site inspections or pre-loading photos are required and coordinate accordingly with the Interco facility staff, supplier, or customer.
The Interco staff will ensure all standard loading photos are professionally documented, communicated, and stored for every shipment:
- An empty container with inside container number visible
- Three-quarters- loaded
- Fully loaded with doors open
- 100% loaded with the right door closed
- Totally loaded with both doors closed and seal on the door
- Close-up of the door seal
In conclusion, if additional loading photographs or other services are required (e.g. inspector with Geiger counter), the Interco staff will facilitate the additional services and manage the process through completion. Rather, immediately upon completion of loading, Interco staff members document and record all loading photos, scale tickets, container weight verification forms, and packing lists on a per-container basis to ensure accuracy and timeliness.
