Intermodal Shipping[ Return to top ]

Intermodal ShippingIntermodal transportation is a combination of modes of transportation, but generally implies the use of both truck and rail services. Containers are picked up and delivered just like a normal truckload. However, the transit from city to city is carried out using specialized equipment via rail. Special interchangeable containers are used allowing goods to be transferred from ship to rail to truck without having to be repacked. It saves money by lowering fuel cost and decreasing labor by using the same container for all modes of transport.

Intermodal Cost-Reduction can be very significant. Drawbacks include less flexibility, as firms are limited to places where there are train routes, and slower shipping times.

Intermodal Transportation should be used when shipments:

  • Are between 10,000 and 45,000 pounds
  • Traveling more than 1,000 miles between major metro areas
  • Can practically use 40', 48', or 53' trailers and containers.
  • Expedited service is not needed, 4-12 days transit time depending on distance

Our logistics team and account managers would appreciate the opportunity to guide you through the complications of intermodal shipping.
