NEW YORK, May 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- About intermodal freight transportation
Intermodals use different modes of transport to move products from one place to another. Initially, freight relied on rail, road, plane, and ships, but now it involves transporting merchandise via a combination of these. Companies are relying more on intermodals for the shipment of automotive parts, consumer goods, and heavy vehicles. Though there are many reasons for the increased use of intermodals, the main reasons are efficiency, low cost, and environmental impact. According to the Intermodal Association of North America, there was a 33% increase in shipping by intermodal rail in 2010 compared to the previous year. Railroad is the most important and common mode of intermodal transport for freight, and approximately 41% of total intermodal freight is transported by this mode. It offers many advantages such as cost-effectiveness, ease of tracking, fewer idle periods, door-to-door delivery, quicker delivery, safety of cargo, and ability to use different routes. Intermodal freight transportation industry is also introducing some major technological advances such as ICT, computerized vehicle routing, active traffic management, and online freight exchange.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global intermodal freight transportation market to grow at a CAGR of 17.40 percent over the period 2014-2019.
