Todd Tranausky discusses the differences in terminal times between carload and intermodal.
This Q&A response from the FTR experts came from our April Rail Outlook (Carload + Intermodal) webinar. View the video and the key takeaways below.
- Intermodal turn times are up due to chassis availability and fluidity of intermodal terminals.
- Carload times are not always accurate as cars may not be dwelling on the railroad property as much, but dwelling at shipper facilities on either side for longer.
