Fast Lane Transportation Inc, provider of intermodal transportation and equipment services throughout California, has launched a service that offers secure overnight load storage.
Situated on 12 acres in Wilmington CA, half a mile from the Los Angeles/Long Beach harbors, the new service will better serve truckers, freight forwarders, and steamship lines by providing a safe facility with guard-protected, 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,” said Patrick Wilson, president of Fast Lane. “Our secure load storage site has lighting strategically positioned for an excellent surveillance system. We offer secure storage, easy access, and a convenient location to the Los Angeles and Long Beach harbors.”
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 back-up for all security and lighting. Drivers may remain with their loads since some insurance companies require truckers to stay with trailers to the final destination.
With the Port of Los Angeles Clean Truck Program proposal requiring licensed motor carriers to comply with off-street parking provisions, Fast Lane is already in compliance.
Fast Lane operates an 80-acre intermodal crossdock and equipment depot in Adelanto CA for medium- to long-term equipment storage. The company has a 50-acre facility in Wilmington for equipment storage, repair, sales, and trucking services at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and the Terminal Island Freeway, one mile from the Intermodal Container Transfer Facility.
