WHY CHOOSE INTERMODAL SHIPPING?
New regulations are limiting the number of operating hours that truck drivers can be on the road, which has created truck capacity issues for shippers all over the United States. The use of the railroad in intermodal shipping works around these capacity challenges.
Intermodal transportation helps reduce freight costs on shipping lanes. On average, our customers are saving more than 30 percent by using intermodal shipping rather than the traditional over-the-road trucking method.
Shipping by rail can range in length from under 500 miles to coast-to-coast deliveries. ASAP Transport Solutions has plenty of options no matter how far your shipment needs to go.
