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 sh...
What is INTERMODAL FREIGHT TRANSPORT? What does INTERMODAL FREIGHT TRANSPORT mean? INTERMODAL FREIGHT TRANSPORT meaning - INTERMODAL FREIGHT TRANSPORT definition - INTERMODAL FREIGHT TRANSPORT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. 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 roa...
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.
Space assets contribute to greater data visibility in the Maritime supply chain. i-PORT focusses on intermodal operational interfaces between Port, Haulier and Shipping Line. i-PORT is an extended services platform and has the capability to ingest further maritime data applications.

email your questions email@example.com 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...

My opinion about intermodal and why I like and dislike when compared to OTR.
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

Had to go to one of the Chicago area intermodal yards to drop a container, so here is an example of what it's like inside a yard.

English - The highlight of the nights filming was DL48 leading G536 to Melbourne on CM3! Something we could only wish for these days. All flimed at night from the station platform so you can get up close with the sights and sounds of the trains! Junee in Southern New South Wales is still a railway town buit nothing compared to it's glory days. Pacific National still has a driver depot based there and much of the freight traffic to and from Melbourne and Sydney runs at night. Here are three trains filmed from the station platform. Filmed August 2011.
