    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.

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 damage and loss, and allows freight to be transported faster. Reduced costs over road trucking is the key benefit for inter-continental use. This may be offset by reduced timings for road transport over shorter distances. Intermodal transportation goes back to the 18th century and predates the railways. Some of the earliest containers were those used for shipping coal on the Bridgewater Canal in England in the 1780s. Coal containers (called "loose boxes" or "tubs") were soon deployed on the early canals and railways and were used for road/rail transfers (road at the time meaning horse drawn vehicles). Wooden coal containers used on railways go back to the 1830s on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. In 1841 Isambard Kingdom Brunel introduced iron containers to move coal from the vale of Neath to Swansea Docks. By the outbreak of the First World War the Great Eastern Railway was using wooden containers to trans-ship passenger luggage between trains and sailings via the port of Harwich. The early 1900s saw the first adoption of covered containers, primarily for the movement of furniture and intermodal freight between road and rail. A lack of standards limited the value of this service and this in turn drove standardisation. In the U.S. such containers, known as "lift vans", were in use from as early as 1911.

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 States intermodal shipments, it transports more than one million containers per year. The double-stack rail cars design significantly reduces damage in transit and provides greater cargo security by cradling the lower containers so their doors cannot be opened. A succession of large, new domestic container sizes was introduced to increase shipping productivity. In Europe the more restricted loading gauge has limited the adoption of double-stack cars. However, in 2007 the Betuweroute was completed, a railway from Rotterdam to the German industrial heartland, which may accommodate double stacked containers in the future. Other countries, like New Zealand, have numerous low tunnels and bridges, which limits expansion for economic reasons. Since electrification generally predated double stacking, the overhead wiring was too low to accommodate it. However, India is building some freight only corridors with the overhead wiring at 7.45 m above rail, which is high enough. Containers Containers, also known as intermodal containers or ISO containers because the dimensions have been defined by ISO, are the main type of equipment used in intermodal transport, particularly when one of the modes of transportation is by ship. Containers are 8-foot (2.4 m) wide by 8-foot (2.4 m) high. Since introduction, there have been moves to adopt other heights, such as 8-foot-6-inch (2.59 m), 9-foot-6-inch (2.90 m) and 10-foot-6-inch (3.20 m). The most common lengths are 20 feet (6.1 m) nominal or 19 feet (5.8 m) - 101⁄2 in (0.27 m) actual, 40 feet (12 m), 48 feet (15 m) and 53 feet (16 m), although other lengths exist. They are made of steel and can be stacked atop one another (a popular term for a two-high stack is "double stack"). Onboard ships they are typically stacked up to seven units high. They can be carried by truck, rail, container ship, or aeroplane. When carried by rail, containers can be loaded on flatcars or in container well cars. In Europe, stricter railway height restrictions (smaller loading gauge and structure gauge) and overhead electrification prevent containers from being stacked two high, and containers are hauled one high either on standard flatcars or other railroad cars. Taller containers are often carried in well cars (not stacked) on older European railway routes where the loading gauge is particularly small. Some variations on the standard container exist. Open-topped versions covered by a fabric curtain are used to transport larger loads. A container called a tanktainer, with a tank inside a standard container frame, carries liquids. Refrigerated containers are used for perishables. There is also the swap body, which is typically used for road and rail transport. Built too lightly to be stacked, they have folding legs under their frame so that they can be moved between trucks without using a crane. Various non-standard container forms are commonly used. These include non-stackable open box containers, and several slightly non-standard geometries. European containers are often about two inches wider than the ISO standard although otherwise conformant, which can carry the euro-pallet standard pallet load. Specialised containers used in Europe include containerised coal carriers, and recently "bin-liners" - containers designed for the efficient road/rail transportation of rubbish from cities to recycling and dump sites. In countries where the loading gauge is sufficient, truck trailers are often used for freight that is transported primarily by road and rail. Typically, regular semi-trailers can be used, and do not need to be specially designed.

Skip intro here: 0:36 Northwest Ohio is home to some of the busiest railroad mainlines in North America, including CSX Transportation’s Willard Subdivision. Located between the towns of Hoytville and North Baltimore, Ohio, CSX’s massive North Baltimore Yard, opened in 2011, services between 25 and 30 intermodal trains per day. The yard is part of an investment in CSX’s $850 million dollar "National Gateway Project", which will make shipping intermodal freight safer, faster, and more cost efficient when completed. The National Gateway Project is also expected to create over 50,000 new jobs over the next thirty years, with a total public benefit of over $10 Billion Dollars. The National Gateway Project will allow CSX to increase its intermodal capacity to double the volume they currently ship. The yard utilizes over 500 acres of property and 300 new employees for the switching, loading, and unloading of intermodal trains. Because North Baltimore is located on one of CSX’s busiest railroad subdivisions, and since it is located between several major US cities, the yard makes for the perfect staging ground. Trucks from locations within a 200 mile range come to North Baltimore for the drop-off of loaded and empty intermodal crates. Before unloading at the yard, the trucks go through a scanner at the main entrance, which scans the truck’s shipping information, such as what load it is hauling, where the truck’s location of origin is located, and where the intermodal container is to be shipped once loaded onto a train. After passing through the scanner and a security inspection, the trucks are permitted to enter the yard. Upon arriving in the yard, the containers are picked up by a ground loader. They are then placed in several rows on the south side of five, 100 foot tall intermodal cranes. The cranes, of European design, are powered by electricity and run on a track. Since Northwest Ohio is a relatively flat area, one can see these cranes from several miles away. Each crane is operated by one man, who is required to have hundreds of hours of training time on a simulator before operating the giant machines for the first time. The intermodal cranes operate 24/7, servicing trains that operate all over the region. When moving, the cranes make loud beeping sounds to alert the CSX employees on the ground of their whereabouts. As one can see, the North Baltimore Yard is one busy place. CSX plans to continue the expansion of its National Gateway Project, adding new trains and more shipping customers to its system. After visiting the yard in North Baltimore, we traveled seven miles west to Deshler, Ohio. Deshler is a crossroads between the CSX’s Garrett, Willard, and Toledo Subdivisions. In this scene, CSX train K682, led by Union Pacific locomotives, charges east over the diamond at Deshler. Thank you for watching Delay In Block Productions.
