Wicker Park Logistics has partnered with a range of railroad service providers, with more being added all the time!
Essentially the difference is this. Intermodal transportation looks at the individual mode of transportation as a separate and isolated contract, which can be chained together to complete the shipping process. On the other hand, multimodal transportation looks at the entire shipping process and all the modes involved under the monitoring radar of one single carrier.
This method of transportation for containers makes use of available railcar capacity and uses road-based transportation lanes and modes. This often allows for faster loading and unloading and can cut time and expenses off the final delivery of medium-to-larger shipments.
Trailer on flat car deliveries can help speed up the movement of cargo from one shipping mode to another. Moving containers from ocean ports or airports to trucking distribution centers can be done more quickly and efficiently using railcar availability.
Importing and exporting freight can be streamlined and simplified with rail transloading services and intermodal freight transportation. Domestic and international freight is often transported with rail-based services, such as those available from our intermodal freight company.
