DeSpir offers Domestic Intermodal Shipping — Utilizing truck and rail services — To make long haul freight transportation more cost effective, secure, and environmentally friendly for our customers.
Intermodal transport can dramatically reduce shipping costs. Trains are nearly four times more fuel efficient than trucks and have a significantly higher capacity to haul cargo. You can save up to 20% when you optimize your business’ shipping strategy by employing intermodal freight transportation.
Long haul shipments over-the-road can run the risk of delays due to inspections and theft during DOT mandated driver stops. Shipping by rail offers the security of a sealed load on a moving train.
Railroads also boast the highest safety rating for transporting dangerous materials, as trucks are responsible for over fifteen times more hazmat and chemical releases.
Intermodal freight transportation is an eco-friendly alternative solution to shipping by truckload. Trains are considerably more fuel-efficient then trucks — One ton of freight can be moved 500 miles by rail on just one gallon of fuel.
By shipping domestic intermodal, your business can lessen fuel costs and dramatically reduce its carbon footprint.
