Intermodal freight transport is the transportation of freight in an intermodal container, often using multiple modes of transportation – like truck, ship, and rail – without ever having to handle the freight itself when changing shipping modes. Intermodal transportation reduces cargo handling and improves security while reducing damage and loss, allowing freight to be transported quicker.
