With improvements in rail quality and consistency, DSV’s intermodal product can deliver significant savings to your transportation budget. And unlike boxcar freight trains, intermodal trains make few if any stops and offer competitive transit times to highway truckload service. The advantages you will gain through intermodal include:
- Reduced fuel surcharge expense
- Added seasonal capacity
- Reduced carbon footprint
As a customer, you will benefit from our relationships with all major North American railroads, and our extensive drayage network ensures your cargo moves efficiently from origination to final destination. With DSV, you gain the confidence of working with an experienced team who will manage the complexities of the entire intermodal shipping process, enabling you to save time and increase margin.
DSV ‘s trailer-on-flat-car services enable a streamlined combination of truck and train transportation. We also offer container-on-flat-car services, which add additional savings opportunities especially when containers are destined for overseas shipping.
Intermodal Border Crossing
You can be assured that DSV will move your cargo across the border safely, securely and prevent it from getting tied up in red tape.
