Intermodal Containers

Intermodal is the hottest thing in railroading. Shipping, trucking and rail lines have combined with the goal of providing reduced commodity handling, and shorter time between destinations than previous methods of handling less than shipload quantity cargos.
The original containers developed by shipping companies were 20' or 40' long with a 96" width, and are stacked with IBC’s (interbox connectors) stored in a box on the stack cars themselves. US shippers required a larger container to compete with 48' over the road trucks. The lighter, higher capacity 48 became a new option in the highly competitive domestic shipping market.
