THE BENEFITS OF INTERMODAL

Intermodal refers to the transport of freight in which more than one mode of conveyance is used. Typically, the freight is moved in Containers and Trailers (dry or refrigerated), Specialized Flatbeds or Tank Containers. And it can deliver transit times that are comparable to over-the-road-only options. Not only can intermodal reduce supply chain costs, but it also allows for growth without investment in additional equipment and it saves fuel (and reduces emissions). In fact, a typical intermodal train takes the equivalent of 280 trucks off the highways.

FASTER. BIGGER. MORE DEDICATED.

BNSF transports goods 20% faster than the next leading intermodal provider and handles over 1 million more intermodal units each year than any other railroad. Plus, our commitment is unmatched in the industry, as intermodal traffic represents almost 50% of our total freight portfolio by volume. Each year translating to over 4.5 million units handled.
