What is Shunting?

Shunting is the process of a shunt truck locating and moving a designated trailer to its planned location. Shunting is the act of continual flow and movement of multiple shunts which move to and from a shipping yard’s doors to their locations in the yard or short distances by road.

Frequently Asked Shunting Questions

Here are some common questions regarding our shunting services.

  • Does Wills Transfer offer standalone shunting services?

    Our shunting services complement our full-spectrum warehousing, distribution and 3PL (Third-Party Logistics) Services; we do not offer shunting as a standalone service.

  • What are the goals of Shunting?

    The primary goal of a shunting service is to provide quick, multiple yard moves to increase loading and reduce staff down time waiting for a highway driver to move trailers.

    Another goal of using a shunting service is to have access to constant trailer moves during predetermined peak operations time.

  • What are the specific benefits of shunting services on the distributor’s side?

    When you combine our shunting services, warehousing & distribution together you are able to store, load and finish your supply chain needs with one partner, Wills Transfer.

    Our team can help to create a tailored Shunting Service that fits your business and the needs of your customers.

  • Can Wills Transfer shunt my products to a retail store/outlet or other destination?

    A shunting service is not the same as a Line-Haul, LTL, or Highway service but Wills Transfer, on your behalf, can connect and partner with multiple providers that do offer these services.
