The Future of Intermodal Freight
Transportation of Goods By Ship, Truck or Train
How important is intermodal freight to our economy and to our way of life?
Just look around you. Many of the everyday things in your house, office or car such as clothes, computers, cell phones or children’s toys – most likely these items have traveled around the world or the country before reaching you. Everything from what stocks the shelves of your local store to the prices you pay is affected by the journey that these goods and products take to get to you. Businesses depend on intermodal transportation to provide consumers with prompt delivery and affordable prices. Freight railroads are investing heavily to meet the intermodal demands of tomorrow.
