How to Gain a Competitive Edge with Intermodal Transportation

The intermodal supply chain is complex and involves container ports around the world, local drayage providers, warehouse networks, IMCs, and railroads. Shippers moving intermodal freight are exposed to variables like weather, labor issues, drayage capacity, and congested rail infrastructure, causing costs and transit times to fluctuate as markets evolve. Freight forwarders do not simply quote port-to-port container lanes, but also plan and price door-to-door moves across modes. The participants in these value chains vary significantly in size and technological sophistication. In this white paper, Blume Global and FreightWaves explore the current market forces driving the need for intermodal visibility and how technology can provide a competitive advantage.
