Can transloading mean loading and unloading of cargo from one truck to another truck? From Wikipedia:

Transloading is the process of transferring a shipment from one mode of transportation to another. It is most commonly employed when one mode cannot be used for the entire trip, such as when goods must be shipped internationally from one inland point to another. Such a trip might require transport by truck to an airport, then by airplane overseas, and then by another truck to its destination; or it might involve bulk material (such as coal) loaded to rail at the mine and then transferred to a ship at a port.

It says like it can only be from one mode of vehicle to another. So if I'm talking about truck-to-truck transloading, does it make sense?

Thank you
