While Intermodal transportation is perceived to be a relatively “new” mode of freight transportation, it was actually introduced in the 18th century in England. With ever increasing driver shortages, Trailer On Flat Car (TOFC) and Container On Flat Car, (COFC) has become a premier way to ship freight in today’s transportation environment. Intermodal is the fastest growing mode of transportation in the USA today.
Transport Express has its roots in the Intermodal market place, its founder having worked for the first company in the Twin Cities, marketing Intermodal services. Today it is common to watch a dedicated Intermodal train, speed along ribbon rail tracks, carrying trailers with familiar names such as; UPS, J.B. Hunt, Roadway and YRC. Technology to gently and smoothly lift trailers onto and off of the rail equipment along with dedicated Intermodal trains insure a very smooth, expedited ride for the trailers and containers on board.
Even when it is transported from boat to train, train to truck, truck to train etc. the freight remains in the same trailer or container. The benefit to this is that it improves security, reduces damage and loss and allows freight to be transported faster, making Intermodal service a more viable option for many companies. At Transport Express, we look forward to partnering with you in providing seamless Intermodal service to or from any origin or destination of your choosing.
