Fast Lane Transportation Inc., a provider of intermodal transportation and equipment services throughout California, has launched a new service that offers secure overnight load storage. Situated on 12 acres in Wilmington, half a mile from the Los Angeles/ Long Beach harbors, the new service will provide a safe and secure facility with guard protection, gated entry and a secure perimeter for drivers and loaded containers.
“Cargo theft, particularly in these difficult economic times, is on the rise, and our industry needs alternatives to protect their customer’s freight,” says Patrick Wilson, president of Fast Lane Transportation. “Our secure load storage site has lighting strategically positioned for an excellent surveillance system.” The service operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week to offer truckers immediate access to their cargo.
The company maintains and operates digital security cameras with night monitoring, along with a generator backup for all security and lighting. A driver may remain with the load since some insurance companies require truckers to stay with trailers to the final destination. With the Port of Los Angeles Clean Trucks Program proposal requiring licensed motor carriers to comply with off-street parking provisions, Fast Lane says it is already in compliance.
Fast Lane Transportation also operates an 80-acre intermodal crossdock and equipment depot in Adelanto, Calif., for medium to long-term equipment storage, with proximity to San Bernardino. The company also operates a 50-acre facility in Wilmington, Calif., for equipment storage, repair, sales and trucking services at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and the Terminal Island Freeway and one mile from the Intermodal Container Transfer Facility. Fast Lane’s Oakland depot is four miles from the piers, with direct access to the main freeways leading to Interstate 5.
