Despite the pressure to optimize transportation spend, the fact is – most shippers have sub-optimal truckload shipments in their portfolio. Overlooking intermodal services as part of your transportation mix often means missed opportunities to lower costs and secure long-term capacity for your long-distance freight. Here’s why you should consider intermodal:
By linking traditional truckload service with alternative modes like rail, Red Classic customers can take advantage of reliability on par with truckload service while reducing fuel surcharges and handling. On average, intermodal shipping costs 20% less than traditional truckload service.
