Key Advantages Intermodal has over Truckload:
BCO's and NVO's are always on the quest to find the most effective and efficient method to ship their freight. When planning your next load, there are a number of elements that you should consider to see if a conversion from truckload to intermodal is the best course of action for your shipment.
There are numerous misunderstandings surrounding the speed, security, and value of intermodal. Many of these misconceptions were created years ago, yet not erased from the minds of many shippers. With many still living in the past, value is being left on the table for loads that would be a good fit for intermodal.
