About Intermodal Companies and Cargo Transport

Intermodal shipping involves the use of special standardized containers. These intermodal containers differ from trailers that are pulled by Class 8 tractors. An intermodal trailer is specifically designed to transfer cargo from one mode of transportation to another. It is transported onto a tractor-trailer via a crane or telehandler-style piece of machinery.

These containers are made from durable steel so to handle transport via air, ocean or rail. . Cargo ships require truck drivers handling intermodal freight to receive shipments.

When an intermodal shipment arrives by rail, ocean or air, intermodal transportation companies move the cargo from that mode of transportation. It is then placed on a tractor-trailer that is equipped for intermodal containers. This requires a flatbed trailer with open sides for maneuvering the intermodal container.

Then, intermodal drivers either transport this freight to a warehouse or distribution center where an LTL or FTL hauler carries the cargo along its way via ground transportation. This is referred to as drayage service. Air cargo may also be utilized at this point to move cargo in bulk domestically, such as with one-day or same-day delivery. Here at Envoy Logistics, we manage all of these procedures for our B2B clients.
