What is Intermodal Shipping?


Intermodal freight transport is the movement or shipping of freight in a shipping container by multiple transportation vehicles such as trains, ships and trucks. During the transport no single company handles the freight itself. Instead, the container simply moves from one vehicle to another without changing modes. This is a great shipping device when security is vital. It’s also ideal when you want to minimize the handling of the goods being shipped. Shipping this way greatly reduces your freight costs and typically allows for faster transport.
