What is intermodal freight services?

Intermodal freight services are one of the most convenient freight services offered by SHIPHAUS. Intermodal freight service simply means shipping of cargo by two or more means of transport such as road and rail. In most cases, cargo is loaded onto trucks which transport the cargo to a railway loading dock where the cargo is loaded and shipped by rail, and then lastly the cargo is unloaded and loaded onto a truck which transports it to its final destination. Many intermodal freight companies also use ocean freight services to compliment other forms of transport and this is also intermodal freight service.

Our Services include:

Containers/ freight cars

We offer containers or freight cars for intermodal freight services. These standard sized containers can be loaded on a flat-bed truck or on the flat bed train and transported to any part of the country. This is the most common cargo loading method with available container sizes being the twenty feet long and forty feet long containers. The major advantage of using containers is ease of handling as there are specialized types of equipment for quick loading and unloading of the containers. Containers or freight cars are also secure and efficiently protects goods from damage.
