How does intermodal transportation work?

A general overview of the complexities of it all
How does intermodal transportation work?

Intermodal transportation is commonly referred to as the transportation of cargo or freight, usually in a containerized or otherwise standardized mechanism; which utilizes multiple forms of transport for delivery from origin to the final destination, and brings it back to its point of initiation.

Thus, generally speaking, this containerized cargo shall go via any available means to meet whatever requirement may be. Ocean, rail, road, and even air; we can imagine any commercially accessible techniques will make up the journey.

The choice of perspective brings forth the names of some of the players. Though global logistics ties the forces of energy we exchange in the marketplace of commerce; the ones closest to the fringe are the ones moving the goods pleasing our flow.

When we buy and sell the service of movement, we inevitably respect a constant demand that is harmonized by an equally corresponding supply.

How much of the responsibility is shared and believed, incorporates an equal degree of humility and visibility. Some of us are as vertically integrated as antitrust laws may allow; while some others choose to have theoretical less skin in the game, and serve as intermediaries in asset-light operations.

To tell when this system starts and where the path goes next, is a balance of the conveniences we are programmed to expect and the price we are willing to pay. As we say, where there is a will there is a way, so, the duality of private and public companies is the perpetual transformation of our wishes and the dreams left unsaid.
