Optimize your modal mix with Highway to Intermodal Rail (H2R) conversion. Shippers expect intermodal to account for 17% of their truckload freight by 2020.* *Wolfe Research, The State of Freight, 2014 Is your supply chain missing a vital link? If your supply chain underutilizes intermodal rail – a transportation solution that offers cost savings and diversifies your access to capacity solutions – then your company could be paying the costs of a sub-optimized freight network. This occurs when truck transportation is used where an intermodal solution would be more efficient and sustainable. The truckload market has become capacity constrained, driven by an improving economy and a growing driver shortage, leaving shippers paying higher rates for the movement of their goods. Enhancing your modal mix with the incorporation, or expansion, of intermodal rail can help reduce your supply chain’s exposure to risk factors.
  3. 3. Save with the strength of CSXT Intermodal. Freight moves that are more than 500 miles, beginning and ending within 75 miles of an intermodal terminal, are most likely to have an intermodal solution that meets transit requirements and produces cost savings.
