Intermodal drayage is the trucking of shipping containers among various forms of transportation. It is a critical link in the intermodal supply chain. At PLR Transport, our intermodal drayage services are a cut above the rest. In fact, intermodal is what we’re known for.
Intermodal drayage provides many benefits over traditional trucking. Here are some of the advantages it offers:
Intermodal drayage provides a cost-effective alternative since containers arrive at destinations faster, reducing the need for long-term storage. Especially if you are transporting loads over short distances, going intermodal can save you a lot of money.
By working with a 3PL that uses a TMS to track loads, you can rest assured that your goods are safe, secure, and headed to the right place at the right time. Without these resources, you run the risk of losing track of loads.
By using multiple modes of transportation, intermodal drayage gives you more options to get your shipment to its destination. Intermodal is also adaptable. If there are any changes, this method provides options to find the right solution.
If you’re interested in reducing your carbon footprint, intermodal drayage is the way to go. Intermodal drayage uses modern equipment with diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), meaning it is more environmentally friendly than traditional trucking.
With the flexibility of intermodal drayage, you can choose the best route for your shipment based on your needs. If you’re looking for a fast, reliable, and efficient way to transport your shipment, intermodal drayage is the right choice. Contact PLR Transport today to learn more about our services.
