What needs to become
competitive?
Terminals (Intermodal Hubs)
• As much modes of transports (at least rail+road); adding sea or river
where possible
• Facilities like: Free trade zone; logistical services; Cross-docking;
Warehousing; Temperature controlled (cold chain); Heating for tank
containers; Container depot; Bulk storage
• Rail connections operating at Terminal: fixed schedule; reliable; high
frequency

Intermodal advantages
Reliable
• Today, all parties in the supply chain use state-of-the-art technology to
monitor shipments every step of the way. With real-time information, today's
intermodal companies are keeping track of schedule changes and watching
out for their customers' shipments so they don't have to.
Efficient
• Intermodal transportation provides shippers with reliable, consistent service
with cost savings compared to over-the-road transportation.
Safe
• With high-tech lift technology and articulated intermodal railcars, damage to
freight is minimized. According to the Association of American Railroads, in
2003 Class 1 railroads charted the lowest freight loss and damage statistics
in more than 10 years.
Environmentally Friendly
• Railroads account for just nine percent of total transportation-related
nitrogen oxide emissions while also alleviating highway congestion.
