Direct Connect Transport offers intermodal and rail freight transport services for customers with flexible transit times. This budget-friendly option uses rail shipping lanes to transfer commodities and other goods over long distances. We recommend this service when truck transport is not the appropriate solution to suit your needs.

Affordable Option

Rail shipments normally carry a longer transit time, but they can be very effective when you’re looking to save money.  If longer transit times are not an issue, freight train shipping is an economical solution no matter what industry you’re in. Though it may be less expensive than our truck freight options, we don’t skimp when it comes to your satisfaction with our service. Our partnerships with large railroad companies help us follow through on our promise of reliable delivery.

Intermodal Freight Transport

At Direct Connect Transport, we don’t just have the capability to ship rail—we also handle the entire door-to-door process. With the help of our dependable carrier network, our trucks will pick up your shipment and transfer it to the correct rail line for departure. Once the freight train reaches its destination, we’ll reload the cargo onto one of our trucks for final delivery.

By using railroad modes and truck transport, we’re able to provide an intermodal freight service that’s streamlined from beginning to end.

Long-Distance Supply Chains

When you need to deliver mass shipments of goods from one end of the country to the other, our intermodal and rail freight transport services make the task simple. You can improve the efficiency of your supply chain by incorporating intermodal shipping into your distribution process.

Secure Shipment

Intermodal shipping containers provide secure enclosures for your shipment, so you know the contents will remain safe and protected from the elements throughout the process. You can rest assured that your goods will arrive intact and ready for use.
