TTX is Prepared for the Long Term Growth of Intermodal.
According to the Association of American Railroads, intermodal traffic (shipping containers or trailers on railcars), accounts for more revenue to the railroads than any other commodity, including coal or grain. Intermodal combines the door-to-door convenience of truck, with the economy of rail. Intermodal shipments have quadrupled during the past 25 years. Intermodal containers and trailers carry a wide range of consumer goods (such as clothing, appliances, housewares, electronics, etc.), and industrial and agricultural products.
