Intermodal Transportation

Intermodal transportation involves moving freight using two or more modes of transport (trucking, rail, or ocean) without handling the freight. Intermodal freight transportation combines the best features of different transportation modes to deliver service, solutions, and savings to shippers. If you require scalable capacity and door-to-door service, call us to learn more about our intermodal solutions.

Door-to-Door Rail Freight

Yes, shipping freight by rail can reach your business’ doorstep – it appears seemingly like a full truckload, door-to-door service.

Here’s how it works: 

Step 1.  A rail container is delivered by truck to the shipper’s dock for loading

Step 2. The loaded container is picked-up by truck and transported to the nearest rail service center

Step 3. The rail freight shipment travels via rail to its predetermined rail ramp

Step 4. At the rail ramp, the rail container is transferred via truck to the final destination. 

Rail Freight Transit Time

Typical transit time for coast-to-coast delivery is 7 to 10 days. Trains operate on a regularly scheduled service throughout North America. BGI offers shipment tracking so your rail freight is monitored from origin to destination.
