Is your supply chain missing a vital link?
If your supply chain underutilizes intermodal rail - a transportation solution that offers cost savings and diversifies your access to capacity solutions - then your company could be paying the costs of a sub-optimized freight network.

This occurs when truck transportation is used where an intermodal solution would be more ef cient and sustainable.

The truckload market has become capacity constrained, driven by an improving economy and a growing driver shortage, leaving shippers paying higher rates for the movement of their goods.

Enhancing your modal mix with the incorporation, or expansion, of intermodal rail can help reduce your supply chain’s exposure to risk factors.
