Fast Lane Offers Overnight Load Storage

Nov. 18, 2010
New service will offer truckers, freight forwarders and shipping lines short-term secured storage near the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach

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 secure facility with guard-protected, gated entry and a secure perimeter for drivers and loaded containers.

The service will operate 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. 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 Truck Program proposal requiring licensed motor carriers to comply with off-street parking provisions, Fast Lane is already in compliance.

Fast Lane Transportation also operates an 80-acre intermodal cross-dock and equipment depot in Adelanto, Calif., for medium to long-term equipment storage.

The company 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.
