Transloaders are a specialized form of industrial or commercial conveyor for transferring dry bulk cargo between modes of transport. Typically, this is from railcar to truck or truck to railcar. Granular material exits through a gate at the bottom of the railcar or trailer — and the transloader raises and discharges it into the hopper, trailer or second railcar.
