53' Domestic Intermodal Container Dimensions

We're Here To Take Away Your Logistics Worries, so You Can Focus on Making Your Business GREAT.

North American Door-to-Door 53' Intermodal Container Dimensions.

InTek Freight and Logistics has access to over 250,000 North American door-to-door 53' intermodal containers to move shippers' freight. 

Take note that the payload capacity is 42,500, which is 2,500 less than a truckload shipment.  We call out this point because the number one issue with intermodal transportation is weight.  

InTek also has 40' and 45' intermodal transportation service options when appropriate for weight and/or pricing advantages.

53' intermodal container specifications are listed below:
