INTERMODAL & RAIL
Intermodal, which combines the use of train and truck, is oftentimes an underrated mode of shipping. Not only is it greener, but it gives you more options to move your freight, and usually at a lower cost. Economically, using intermodal is best for truckload shipments that travel over a thousand miles.
Consider this...a single driver can drive approximately 500 miles per day, but a rail car goes 24 hours per day, making this option a serious consideration when moving high volume shipments to either a warehouse or a distribution centre.
