What is Intermodal Shipping?

Intermodal shipping involves moving containers using multiple modes of transportation.  This allows cargo to move seamlessly from port to rail to over-the-road.

  • Take advantage of lower costs with more predictable pricing.

  • Flexibility of loading and unloading goods in a dropped trailer environment.

  • Gain access to more equipment and standardized transit schedules.

  • Streamline reverse logistics to providing additional savings.

  • Most competitive for shipments over 1000 miles

  • Environmentally friendly

How it works

  1. ECU Trucking coordinates drayage of container from the port to the nearest rail ramp.

  2. Container is then transferred from the truck chassis to a rail car.

  3. Cargo moves via rail to the next intermodal ramp where it is then transferred back to a drayage carrier for final delivery.

(Reverse this process for an export shipment)
