Intermodal is the preferred mode of transportation for internationally traded goods. The containerized units that hold these goods allow for a seamless intermodal transportation between land, air, and sea. Navigating this transportation network requires extensive knowledge of compliance, time-efficiency, and professional service.
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, on the other hand, 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.
