Intermodal Transportation Services Provide:
Increased Visibility and Tracking
Modern intermodal transportation services provide comprehensive tracking options. These options also allow you to follow your items from pick up through the delivery process. Consequently this is vital in establishing accurate timelines . It also will instill a sense of peace of mind in you and in your clients. Additionally, visibility helps you ensure that your customers can continue their business with ample information and plan accordingly for essential shipments.
Decreased External Access and Handling
Reducing handling is a simple way to limit the possibility for human error during the transport process. Since intermodal options rely heavily on the rail system, the security of the items in this capacity is enhanced. Train and rail transport set themselves apart from truck transport by limiting stops or eliminating them entirely. This cuts down on delivery times, of course. It also means that your items are not accessible to outside influence or theft while the train is in moving. Plus, the expansive nature of the U.S. rail system allows items to go from point A to point B with minimal handling in general. Lastly, intermodal options add a layer of inaccessibility for wandering hands for items on a timeline or of a delicate nature.
