Intermodal transportation uses two or more modes or carriers to transport freight from shipper to consignee.
THE INTERMODAL TRANSPORTATION PROCESS
A typical path for an intermodal freight transportation process is rail, truck, ship, truck. Truck transports between rail terminals and ocean ports are a specialized form of trucking referred to as drayage and are often handled by specialists.
An example of this process could look like this:
- A truck brings an empty container to a shipper
- The container is loaded with freight and taken to the rail yard by truck
- The container is put on a train and moved to its destination region
- The container is put on a truck, delivered to the consignee, and unloaded
- The container is ready for reuse with another load
