Intermodal Turns a Corner In Q3

Total intermodal volumes rose 1.2% year-over-year in the third quarter of 2020, according to the Intermodal Association of North America’s Intermodal Quarterly report issued on Nov. 3.

Domestic containers and trailers both gained 9.8% compared to Q3 2019, while international shipments dropped 6.5%.

“Inventory replenishment and increasing e-commerce activity, along with some capacity constraints on the trucking side, have helped intermodal to turn the corner this quarter,” said Joni Casey CEO of IANA. “This trend is expected to continue, but dependent on the ongoing impacts of COVID-19.”
