Intermodal involves the transportation of freight in an intermodal container or vehicle, using multiple modes of transportation (e.g., rail, ship, and truck), without any handling of the freight when changing modes. Benefits of intermodal transportation include predictable pricing, faster movement of goods and a larger capacity to ship more products in a cost-effective manner.
It is also a sustainable shipping option that uses less fuel and contributes much lower emissions, helping companies reduce their carbon footprint.
