Benefits of Intermodal Trucking

Dray presents an economic and efficient solution for moving cargo off the pier and getting it to the final destination. The railroad industry has invested a massive amount of money in expanding the intermodal infrastructure capacity across the U.S. since 2010. According to the Association of American Railroads (AAR), intermodal shipping is now the largest single source of U.S. freight rail revenue because it is more reliable, efficient and cost effective, even for short-haul runs.

Our clients turn to DapeCon to solve issues of stability, access, dependability and transparency in the intermodal industry.
