    Intermodal Industry Update: Conquering the 2017 Capacity Crunch

    - by Transplace

    For shippers and carriers alike, it’s certainly an interesting time in transportation. The intermodal market in particular has shifted on a dime in Q3 of 2017, while over-the-road (OTR) capacity has also changed significantly.

Now is a great time for shippers to take note of this market shift and consider how intermodal transportation can help as capacity continues to tighten.

This one-day event hosted more than 200 attendees from Transplace’s core carrier partners, with 120 carriers represented. The collaborative forum allowed these carriers to network and discuss key transportation trends and challenges that are currently impacting the industry.

From there, it was widely adopted and celebrated in many industrial centers across the U.S. – and it’s a nice way to end the summer months and head into the fall season!
