The intermodal market consists of sales of intermodal rail freight transportation services and related goods by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) that provide the transportation of freight in an intermodal container. In this mode, handling of the freight is not done manually when changing a rail carrier, thus increasing the security of the transported product substantially. Only goods and services traded between entities or sold to end consumers are included.

Organizations are implementing precision scheduled railroading that is gaining popularity in the intermodal market over recent years. Precision scheduled railroading (PSR) is a plan that includes centralizing operations, reducing staff, running less, heavier, faster trains, and optimizing the network to increase efficiency. For instance, in April 2019, Norfolk Southern rolled out the precision-scheduled railroading (PSR) plan to improve its services. In addition to this, according to the Railway Gazette International, in 2019, Kansas City Southern has implemented precision scheduled railroading for improved cost structure, improved customer service, and consistent and reliable operations.

The intermodal market covered in this report is segmented by type into container-on-flatcar (COFC), trailer-on-flatcar (TOFC), by destination into domestic, international, by application into oil and gas, aerospace and defense, industrial and manufacturing, construction, chemical, food and beverages, healthcare, others.

The sustainable nature of intermodal rail transport is expected to drive the intermodals market. Unlike truckloads, rails use less fuel and are faster, which makes intermodal transportation energy and cost-efficient. Over the years, rail fuel efficiency has firmly increased, making it the most environmentally sustainable means of transporting goods overland transport. According to the Association of American Railroads (AAR), the USA freight railways can move one tonne of freight more than 470 miles per gallon of fuel on an average. AAR analysis of federal data finds that if 25% of truck traffic traveling at least 750 miles went by rail instead, annual greenhouse gas emissions expected to fall by around 13.1 million tonnes and if 50% of truck traffic moving at least 750 miles, the greenhouse gas emissions dropped by about 26.2 million tonnes. The most fuel-efficient form of land transport is moving freight by rail, which reduces transportation costs and promotes brand control for a sustainable environment that encourages the growth of the intermodal market.
