Intermodal transportation — using at least two modes of transportation to move freight — is helping shippers across the country realize immediate and long-term benefits, including the ability to secure access to capacity, lower freight transportation costs and reduce carbon emissions.
Converting freight from highway to intermodal rail, which utilizes the efficiencies of double stacked containers, can produce sustainable savings for you and your customers.
