Intermodal freight transport From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Intermodal freight transport involves the transportation of freight in an intermodal container or vehicle, using multiple modes of transportation (rail, ship, and truck), without any handling of the freight itself when changing modes. The method reduces cargo handling, and so improves security, reduces damages and losses, and allows freight to be transported faster. Reduced costs over road trucking is the key benefit for intracontinental use. This may be offset by reduced timings for road transport over shorter distances. Double-stacked container transport Since 1984, a mechanism for intermodal shipping known as double-stack rail transport has become increasingly common. Rising to the rate of nearly 70% of United St...

Every day the intermodal network transports goods from around the world to the American consumer and American-made products to consumers around the world. Intermodal transportation is the seamless movement of goods utilizing multiple modes of transportation to produce the most efficient and cost-effective move possible. The efficiency gains realized by intermodal shippers help to make U.S. businesses more competitive in the global economy. Freight rail is an integral part of this system, providing affordable and reliable long-haul movement of goods while working cooperatively with competitors like trucks who are better suited to short-haul freight movement.
email your questions firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for all that you do! What is going on Tune! I have been looking for an owner operator on YouTube for a while and I was happy to find your videos that are full of good content related to the trucking industry. Much respect. I live in Chicago and I work for a local trucking company which is about 15 miles from Chicago. I pull dry van and or rail. Most of my work is in the state of Illinois but from time to time, I make runs up to Wisconsin and back. I put in 10 to 12 hours a day 4 to 5 days a week. I have been thinking about becoming an owner operator for about a year now and I came across your video about the time you pulled a intermodal load from Illinois to indiana and how good the money was. My question to you is how do you get started p...

This study addressed the feasibility and viability of an integrated solution consisting of space and terrestrial assets in support the optimisation of freight transport through European ports. A review of the user needs together with the technologies and space assets currently in use provided a gap analysis to identify the system requirements and a proof of concept prototype. The project identified the integration of technologies best suited to increase the optimisation of freight transport and also examined the economic and non-economic viability of such a service. http://artes-apps.esa.int/projects/i-port

1205 hrs: DXC5500 & DXC5195 lead a Picton to Christchurch Intermodal freight (bar 1 wagon) past the Christchurch passenger station in suburban Addington. The DXC locomotives are rebuilt GE U26C locos, which originally entered service in 1976 &1975. 50 were built, with 49 still in service, mostly on the South Island. Picton is the South Island terminal of the (train carrying) Inter-Islander ferries. The train is only about 500 metres short of its destination.
