Cost Savings

If your company is shipped freight a long distance, you should consider intermodal. The longer the distance to travel is, the greater the opportunity is to save using intermodal transport.

Increase Shipment Safety

Intermodal transport can use rail as one of the modes of transport, which can be significantly safer than over-the-road trucking service. Rail transport can also be more secure and have less theft than truckload shipping has.

Rail service can be significantly safer than over-the-road trucking service.

Railroads have an outstanding track record in safely delivering hazardous materials – 99.99%

Railroads and trucks carry an almost equal HAZMAT ton-miles, but trucks have 16 times more HAZMAT releases than railroads.

Reduced Carbon Footprint

Intermodal transportation is environmentally friendly compared to single modes of transportation such as trucks. As focus on green initiatives continue to rise, it’s important to move goods by choosing the way that has the least negative impact on the environment. 

Shipping intermediary by rail offers significant environmental benefits compared to the truck.

Shipping intermodally helps a company meet their corporate sustainability goals by “greening” their supply chain.

Moving one ton of freight one mile through rail can reduce CO2 emissions by 83%.

Big Capacity

Long-haul domestic intermodal service can offer you significant savings compared to over-the-road trucking service. In many lanes, direct savings are in excess of 30%.

Compared to the truckload where a driver has 2,000 to 3,000 miles before a new load, this allows for more turnaround time.

Total savings can be even greater, given high fuel surcharge percentages that are applied to base line-haul freight rates.

A single train can move the load of 280 trucks.

Multimodal & Cross-border Transport

Multimodal shipping is the movement of goods using more than one different mode of transportation under an individual contract. Many shippers all across the globe depend on multimodal transport to move their goods daily. 

Multimodal shipping involves communication between multiple parties in order to keep things running smoothly.

Across the board, the multimodal mode generally offers cheaper shipping rates and reduced cargo insurance pricing.

Cross-continental shipments move much quicker through multiple modes. Where one shift ends, another has just started.
