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.

Here are some common questions regarding our shunting services.
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.
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.
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.
