What is Intermodal?

Intermodal transportation is the movement of freight via multiple methods of transportation. This method is an attractive option for shippers because it results in reduced capacity requirements and lower costs. Intermodal also reduces the amount of handling in a shipment and that helps to increase security during transport.

Key advantages Intermodal has over Truckload:

  • An average of 15 to 18% cost savings
  • Capacity solution for constrained truckload lanes
  • Truck competitive transits
  • Enhanced security
  • Improved carbon footprint
