Domestic Intermodal Ocean Box Service

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

About the InTek Freight & Logistics ISO Ocean Container Program for Domestic Shipments.

The InTek ocean container domestic service model is based on relocating empty surplus ocean carrier equipment back to or as close to port locations or areas of deficit.  Our ocean carrier equipment partners provide an incentive to re-position their equipment.  We use this incentive to provide a competitive door-to-door intermodal services.

Box sizes include: standard 40' ISO intermodal boxes, along with 40' & 45' high cube containers.

Rates / Cost: Rail rates are 10%-50% less costly on ocean boxes than 53' intermodal rail equipment.

The intermodal ocean container capacity service is an all-round win.  Shippers benefit from lower shipping costs and additional capacity otherwise not available, ocean equipment partners benefit from lower empty positioning costs and the Class I railroads benefit from building more cost effective train segments in their network.
