ATLANTA, Jan. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Infinity Transportation Logistics, LLC. (ITL) has recently added to its service offerings and is now providing expedited temperature-controlled domestic intermodal service from Washington State and Oregon to Miami, Florida and Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Overall, ITL provides eastbound temperature-controlled door-to-door domestic intermodal service from Washington State and Oregon to the following Midwest and East Coast destinations or locations: Illinois (Greater Chicago & surrounding areas including western Michigan, southern Wisconsin and northern Indiana); New York (Buffalo area, New York City & its boroughs); Pennsylvania (Chambersburg, Harrisburg, and Philadelphia areas); Maryland (greater Baltimore area); Massachusetts (Boston and Springfield areas); Georgia (greater Atlanta area); Florida (Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa Bay and Miami areas), and the greater Toronto area of Canada.
ITL's expedited door-to-door domestic intermodal temperature-controlled service departs from/returns to intermodal ramps in Spokane, WA, Portland, OR & Seattle, WA six days per week. ITL has a service radius of about 160 miles from/to intermodal ramps in Spokane, Portland & Seattle, and can pick up/drop off product in many parts of Washington, Oregon & Idaho including: greater Portland, OR area, Willamette Valley, OR, Hood River, OR, Bend, OR, Columbia Basin of WA & OR, greater Wenatchee, WA area, Yakima Valley, WA, Skagit Valley, WA, Puget Sound, WA area, greater Spokane, WA area and northern Idaho.
ITL's door-to-door transit times are now only 4 to 5 days to/from the Midwest and just 6 to 7 days to/from various destinations on the East Coast, which is nearly as fast as long-haul trucks. Because of the improved transit times, ITL has been seeing increased interest and usage from fresh produce shippers (apples, potatoes, pears, onions, etc.).
ITL utilizes state-of-the-art domestic 53-ft refrigerated containers to move fresh produce (i.e...apples, potatoes, pears, onions, carrots, etc.), frozen foods (i.e...frozen French fries, frozen fish, frozen vegetables, frozen juice concentrate, etc.), and other refrigerated products eastbound from Washington State and Oregon to the Midwest and East Coast.
For return westbound service from the above mentioned Midwest and East Coast locations to Washington State and Oregon, ITL is able to haul various refrigerated and temperature controlled products (i.e...frozen pizza, frozen yogurt, frozen seafood, frozen dough, beverages, frozen juice concentrate, etc.) or dry products.
To continue to raise awareness about its domestic temperature controlled intermodal service in 2016, ITL will be attending/participating this winter and spring at the following frozen foods and fresh produce meetings/conferences:
- AFFI Frozen Food Convention (AFFI-CON) from February 20-24 in San Diego, California;

Infinity Management Partners and its subsidiaries (collectively Infinity) are Atlanta, Georgia-based limited liability companies specializing in the acquisition and leasing of freight transportation assets. Infinity got its start in the rail industry in 2003, accumulating over 6,000 units of rail rolling stock over the balance of the decade.
