Intermodal Service Differences

  • Unit shows up like a “truck” to the shipper and consignee, with a single bill of lading, but different service providers.
    • Many intermodal service products have slower transit than OTR, however some service is similar to single driver transit
  • Blocking and Bracing is extremely important. As the train is moving forward, it is also swaying side to side. If there are any “voids” in the load, you run the risk of a load shift and/or product damage. Rails are not responsible for damages due to improper blocking and bracing

Railroad Door-to-Door (D2D) Products

LSTR has contracts with all railroad D2D programs

  • UPRR’s Streamline Service
  • Norfolk Southern’s TDIS/Modal X
  • CSX’s Critical Capacity
  • Asset Based Carriers with rail contracts
        • (Pacer, Schneider, JB Hunt)

*Note - Agents do not need to be “certified” for intermodal to use these programs. The services are booked as OTR brokerage and commission settlement is 50/50 of the net revenue.
