Intermodal

Sonet Transportation’s flexible intermodal delivery system allows our customers to utilize the most cost-effective method for getting their goods from one destination to another. With extensive experience in the best use of rail, ship and truck transportation, our intermodal, containerized freight services eliminate the handling of the freight itself. Combined with our emphasis on safety and security, these services reduce damage and loss, and move freight faster and more efficiently.

Cross-Border Drayage

Sonet Transportation is a bonded freight carrier, a special designation granted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Our status allows us to transport merchandise that is received from overseas into the United States at a sea, air or border port and deliver it to a Customs Bonded Facility or transfer to a point of export through the country.

We are one of only a few bonded carriers serving the Southern California – Mexico route. We routinely pick up freight at seaports such as Los Angeles and Long Beach, CA and deliver it to its destination, whether locally, regionally or cross-border to Mexico without transloading. This closed, end-to-end system enables freight to be transported:

  • safely and securely
  • without changing drivers or trailers, thereby
  • reducing opportunities for damage
