Intermodal transportation has several benefits for companies, but it also benefits our environment. Many businesses are including intermodal transportation as part of their plan to be more green, according to CSX’s “A Focus on Sustainability.”
CSX states that one intermodal train can take 280 trucks off the road. An opinion piece in Inbound Logistics stated that trucks emit about 19.8 pounds of carbon dioxide per 100 miles, while trains emit 5.4 pounds.
