Reduced cost versus over the road trucking is the key benefit
for intercontinental use.

Our intermodal freight services involves the use of multiple modes of transportation (rail, ship, truck, air, etc.), to get to the final destination. This seamless transportation service reduces cargo handling, improves security, reduces damages and loss. It may also allow freight to be transported faster.

Our intermodal operations team is fully equipped to provide our customers with multiple options when we manage door-to-door shipments. The various options will allow shippers to analyze costs and transit times to make better logistic decisions.

Intermodal services include:

  • Cross-dock (transloading) warehouse operations
  • All-motor (truck) services
  • Team drivers for priority services
  • Motor-Rail (combines truck and rail) services
  • Barges operations
  • Airfreight services

Rail service is becoming faster and more reliable. Intermodal is gradually chipping away at the time advantage that over-the-road trucks have long enjoyed. Higher fuel prices are driving more freight onto the rails, where operating costs are already lower. As a result, hauls of 500 to 600 miles are now being considered serious candidates for intermodal.

Our dry intermodal network couples the unique strengths of our strategic rail partners—Union Pacific and CSX—to help our customers find new opportunities to convert business currently moving over-the-road to intermodal.
