Interested in driving Intermodal? Your search stops here!
Intermodal freight trucking, also called Drayage, is a truck picking up from or delivering to a seaport, inland port, border point or intermodal terminal, typically going only a short distance, using shipping containers or ISO containers in the form of containerization. Intermodal shipping is becoming more and more common as the driver shortage in the United States continues to increase, and it’s less expensive for trucking companies. While intermodal shipping via truck is still more expensive than some other forms of transportation (i.e. train), it’s still less expensive than long haul trucking.

Enjoy your time at home? Intermodal is for you!
The best thing about intermodal freight transportation is that regional drivers are able to get home weekly or more, and local drivers typically are home every night. Because the picking up and dropping off typically takes place in the same urban area, it’s easier for trucking companies to find drivers that are willing to do a one day job, rather than something overnight or multiple days in a row.
