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.
