Intermodal Advantage 02
02

 


BUILDING A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

According to the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals State of Logistics Report, transportation comprises 66% of total logistics costs. Failing to proactively manage your transportation network can cause these costs to rise as trucking challenges such as driver shortages and productivity-hampering trucking regulations constrict capacity in the years ahead.

If you seek to minimize supply chain disruption, mitigate supply risk and lower transportation costs, intermodal can be a powerful solution to your company. Adding intermodal into your transportation mix delivers tangible cost savings. Incorporating multiple modes of transportation into your carrier base reduces reliance on a single source of capacity.

Supply chain leaders who use multimodal freight moves realize short and long-term benefits through leveraging the strengths of each mode of transportation.

Truck capacity will tighten up in less than a year with the implementation of electronic logging devices (ELDs) and other regulations. Securing intermodal capacity ahead of time will ensure your company is ready.
