Intermodal containers

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Get the best of two worlds -- convenient truck pick-up and delivery and cost-effective, reliable rail transportation.

Handling goods shipped either in your intermodal containers or our own, we have a fleet of dry, heated or refrigerated intermodal containers, and​ provide domestic and international intermodal container services.

Domestic intermodal shipping Containers - North America

We move goods for a wide range of industries including food, retail, forest products, grain, and various consumer-related products across North America. But it's not just what we ship that makes us different. It's how we get your shipment from A to B. That's why we offer intermodal container services such as storage and transloading and we can construct distribution centres adjacent to our primary intermodal container terminals.

International intermodal shipping Containers - Overseas

Our international intermodal container service relies on ocean carriers that need quick access to rail transportation services. To ship your intermodal containers efficiently overseas, we run to and from ports in Vancouver, Montreal, New York, Philadelphia and connect to a large number of inland points across Canada and the U.S. The Port of Vancouver offers the shortest route between the Canadian west coast and Chicago.

Our intermodal container transportation network

With 10 modern intermodal container terminals within Canada and the U.S., we continue to invest in new technologies and infrastructure designed to support your growth and supply chain efficiency.
