For freight that must travel interstate, or across the country, transport of full container loads (FCL) is very economical by rail. In these intermodal drayage services, Canal Cartage will pick up your container from the Port of Houston and complete the required paperwork for receipt. We update the successful pick-up and provide real-time updates through our Customer Portal, so that you can check-up on the delivery status and schedule of your container(s).
Intermodal transport from pier to train, can save commercial businesses on the cost of trucking full containers. There is less manpower involved, less fuel consumption and therefore it is a more economical way for transport full containers over a longer distance. It also means that commercial business owners will not have to pay for a return of the empty container.
