What is intermodal?
Intermodal freight transportation, or multi-modal shipping, is the use of two or more modes of transport for the continuous movement of freight from origin to destination. It is about utilizing the best, most efficient mode for each freight move, in an effort to achieve transportation optimization. Incorporating intermodal rail into your transportation mix results in cost-savings, lowered carbon emissions and is an important part of building an optimized supply chain.
