Todd Tranausky discusses the competitive state of 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. 

 

 
Key Takeaways:
  • Rates and volumes are going up as a result of the current competitive nature of intermodal compared to the domestic truckload space.
  • The competitive outlook for intermodal remains positive into next year, and could be even better than predicted based on intangibles such as carriers focusing on ESG benefits and reducing carbon emissions.
