Intermodal shipping is transportation of freight from origin to destination in a vehicle or container using several modes of transport such as rail and truck. This logistically linked system uses different transportation modes in the most efficient manner allowing you to ship domestically and across borders while monitoring your shipments across every mode of transportation it takes. Intermodal shipping services allow trucking and railroads to work together resulting in a more cost effective, streamlined, reliable and efficient way of moving freight from one destination to another.

Efficient – Gone are the days where you needed to sacrifice speed for savings. With intermodal freight transportation, you enjoy consistent, reliable service with cost savings compared to other modes of transportation.
Reliable – All parties involved in the intermodal system use state of the art modern technology so shipments can be monitored in real time every step of the way.
Safe and Environmentally Friendly – Intermodal freight services are not what they used to be thanks to articulated intermodal railcars and high-tech lift technology which significantly minimize damage to freight. Did you know that railways move a single ton of freight approximately 500 miles with 1 gallon of gasoline? This alone results in less greenhouse gas emissions by an astounding 75 percent.
