Learn how to safely & properly ship food and beverages - and other products - via intermodal.
The most common issue for shippers transitioning their freight - food and beverage or otherwise - from truckload to intermodal is loading the container to be legally compliant with gross weight - that and the distribution of weight across the vehicle. Many shippers entering into an intermodal strategy for the first time are either not properly coached or do not take these weight issues as seriously as they need to.
Not running within the legal weight specifications will cause a great deal of frustration for the shipper, as costs and delays are incurred through reworking the intermodal container to be legally transported. And of course, getting freight to its destination unspoiled and intact matters, too.
