Intermodal Transportation

Door-to-door convenience of truckload shipping with the long-haul economy of intermodal rail

Whether you are moving dry goods or hazardous materials across North America, intermodal transportation is an economical, secure and environmentally friendly option for shipments of 500 miles or more.

GlobalTranz’s relationships with intermodal rail carriers, our best-in-class technology, and our team of logistics experts can help lower your intermodal shipping costs, decrease supply chain inefficiencies, and provide you the end-to-end visibility you need to propel your business forward.

Benefits of Intermodal Transportation

Intermodal shipping drives consistency, fuel savings, cargo security and sustainability in your supply chain.

Reduce Emissions

Intermodal transportation burns less fuel than shipping by truck. In fact, due to the large shipment volumes involved, a single rail shipment can save 100,000 gallons of diesel fuel as compared to truckload shipping.

Improve Reliability

When market volatility, new regulations, or other factors impact available truckload capacity and rates, intermodal shipping gives you the flexibility you need to ensure on-time, cost-effective transportation of your goods.

Optimize Costs

Intermodal loads going 500+ miles can typically be transported at a lower cost per pound than over the road shipping.

Safe & Secure

When properly blocked and braced, intermodal transportation provides shippers a safe and secure option to move freight.

Expert Support

Our seasoned logistics experts take a holistic and consultative approach to your intermodal shipping needs, ensuring that your goals are our priority. Our team leverages proven processes, proactive communication, and our award-winning technology to help you achieve your objectives.
