How intermodal container services work

Intermodal Diagram-Words

Intermodal freight transport uses containers and multiple modes of transportation to move cargo without handling the products inside. A typical door to door intermodal shipment starts and ends with dray trucks, with trains handling the long-haul. While multiple carriers are involved, working with InTek makes the experience seamless.
