Intermodal Solutions

The Best of Both Worlds

Why limit yourself to one transport mode when you can utilize air freight for one part of the journey and then consolidate your shipments in a container for the rest? When done right, intermodal offers a less expensive – but no less reliable – transport option that leverages air freight’s speed and ocean’s lower costs.

Moving Fast and Within Budget

If you need to meet tight delivery deadlines while staying within budget, get the best of both worlds with an intermodal solution that blends ocean and air freight. By combining the two, you get a single, streamlined shipping approach that maximizes the biggest advantages of both options, including:

  • Lower transportation costs
  • High levels of reliability
  • Door-to-door convenience of truckload shipping
  • Long-haul economy of ocean freight
  • Less freight handling
  • Shorter transit times
  • Less need for warehousing
  • Good supply chain visibility
  • A completely optimized shipping process
