Transportation is the largest greenhouse gas (GHG) emitter, contributing nearly a third of U.S. emissions according to the Environmental Protection Agency. And with 70% of the nation’s freight moving via truck on an annual basis, adopting more sustainable tactics will be critical for shippers to shrink their carbon footprints. 

A sustainable alternative to motor freight is readily available: intermodal. Rail transportation as an additional mode of transportation has environmental and cost-saving benefits.
