This unique component of our business allows your product to be brought directly to our warehouse so that it can be transloaded and distributed by rail to its final destination. Rail is faster, safer and often is more cost efficient than other intermodal options.

Because its bottom-line friendly, more customers than ever are utilizing rail and R&A Trucking has risen to the challenge. We have developed an expertise at handling a variety of rail equipment to efficiently transport your product to and from domestic locations.

Intermodal Trucking

Intermodal capable trucks are generally used to connect a container from ocean to rail or warehouse. These specialized trucks run between ocean ports, rail terminals, and inland shipping docks. However, there are times when trucks are primarily used in the movement of containers. R&A Trucking maintains a fleet of trucks capable for transporting cargo containers short distances or to destinations across the United States.
