Intermodal Transportation


Intramodal transportation allows you to ship large volumes of freight by combining different types of transport. The most popular, safe, and cost-efficient type is a combination of road transport (trucks, vans) and railway transport (trains).  

There are several benefits of intermodal transportation. It has the flexibility of routes, security, cost-efficiency, and it is more eco-friendly. Every customer who wants to save money on long-distance shipment should consider intermodal transportation as the most cost-efficient method.


    Intermodal shipping is a cost-effective solution if you need to transport large amounts of freight over long distances. Shipping rates for this service build up not only on the freight class and destination but also on the type of the used transport. Different combinations of transport will cost differently.

    Are intermodal logistics services a good option for you?

    They are if:

    1. Destination from pickup to delivery is over 300 miles
    2. Your shipment is a finished commodity such as industrial products, food, and farming goods, with a net weight of fewer than 43,000 pounds
    3. When you ship similar goods regularly, the cargo flow is continuous. 

    If you understand the concept of intermodal shipping, you’ll see the benefits of using this method. You reduce transportation costs, gain access to a wider capacity, and your cargo is more secured and protected.
