Intermodal Services

Temp Controlled Intermodal Service

InTek offers temperature-controlled intermodal services through both trailer on flatcar (TOFC) and container on flatcar (COFC). COFC reefer intermodal service opens up a whole new world for shippers that depend solely on truckload or TOFC intermodal for their temperature-controlled freight. COFC is a more cost effective alternative and equipment is on the high volume, capacity constrained lanes.

Domestic Intermodal Service Using 40' & 45' Ocean Containers

InTek's 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 competitive door-to-door intermodal services.

Transloading Rail & Intermodal

InTek Freight and Logistics offers transloading services for both import and export freight at the major U.S. ports. Our team can either perform inland movements via 53' domestic intermodal or truckload. As a result, shippers can better manage channel inventory needs at a reduced all-in cost.

Intermodal Cross-Border Shipping USA-Canada-Mexico

Domestic intermodal is more than 53' capacity for the lower 48 states. It is also 53' capacity for freight moving between the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

Canadian cross-border freight operates similarly to the lower 48, but with additional paperwork and regulations associated around customs & tax declarations. Mexico has a few more need-to-knows stemming from security and liability coverage.  

Get more information about the ins and outs of cross-border intermodal, and see how InTek can help.
