Mark-it Express Is Your Intermodal Expert – Domestic and International.

Domestic intermodal

We will convert your truckload shipments to intermodal. We save our customers money by converting truckload shipments to intermodal containers. When compared to over-the-road trucking options, our customers find that intermodal shipping is often a more cost-effective solution.

In addition to the cost savings, domestic intermodal shipping saves on fuel and emissions. Intermodal shipping is increasingly popular among shippers because the services have become very flexible. We can deliver your dry or refrigerated freight to every major market in the United States.

Intermodal Defined

Intermodal is the transportation of goods utilizing multiple modes of transportation – these modes include rail lines, steamships, and trucks. This type of shipping can be optimal due to its ability to be cost-efficient, reduce damage, and increase the speed of delivery.

Drayage is the process of transporting containers over short distances, typically less than 300 miles. These are usually distances that can be covered in less than a full day of driving. Drayage is also the process of moving shipments between rail lines and ships, from ships to warehouses, or from rail lines to trucks.
