Intermodal transportation is simply the movement of freight containers using more than one mode of transportation, usually alternating between truck, railroad, air and ocean carriers. In a world where fuel costs are rising and the demand for faster shipping is challenging logistics professionals, the collaboration of methods offers many benefits. Business owners can tackle time constraints, traffic and fuel costs while reducing the carbon footprint.
Best of all, containers transferred from one mode to another aren’t opened while in transition, meaning an uninterrupted ride from point A to B with less exposure to theft.
