Skip intro here: 0:36 Northwest Ohio is home to some of the busiest railroad mainlines in North America, including CSX Transportation’s Willard Subdivision. Located between the towns of Hoytville and North Baltimore, Ohio, CSX’s massive North Baltimore Yard, opened in 2011, services between 25 and 30 intermodal trains per day. The yard is part of an investment in CSX’s $850 million dollar "National Gateway Project", which will make shipping intermodal freight safer, faster, and more cost efficient when completed. The National Gateway Project is also expected to create over 50,000 new jobs over the next thirty years, with a total public benefit of over $10 Billion Dollars. The National Gateway Project will allow CSX to increase its intermodal capacity to double the volume they currently sh...
Intermodal freight transport From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Intermodal freight transport involves the transportation of freight in an intermodal container or vehicle, using multiple modes of transportation (rail, ship, and truck), without any handling of the freight itself when changing modes. The method reduces cargo handling, and so improves security, reduces damages and losses, and allows freight to be transported faster. Reduced costs over road trucking is the key benefit for intracontinental use. This may be offset by reduced timings for road transport over shorter distances. Double-stacked container transport Since 1984, a mechanism for intermodal shipping known as double-stack rail transport has become increasingly common. Rising to the rate of nearly 70% of United St...

Every day the intermodal network transports goods from around the world to the American consumer and American-made products to consumers around the world. Intermodal transportation is the seamless movement of goods utilizing multiple modes of transportation to produce the most efficient and cost-effective move possible. The efficiency gains realized by intermodal shippers help to make U.S. businesses more competitive in the global economy. Freight rail is an integral part of this system, providing affordable and reliable long-haul movement of goods while working cooperatively with competitors like trucks who are better suited to short-haul freight movement.
My opinion about intermodal and why I like and dislike when compared to OTR.
email your questions firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for all that you do! What is going on Tune! I have been looking for an owner operator on YouTube for a while and I was happy to find your videos that are full of good content related to the trucking industry. Much respect. I live in Chicago and I work for a local trucking company which is about 15 miles from Chicago. I pull dry van and or rail. Most of my work is in the state of Illinois but from time to time, I make runs up to Wisconsin and back. I put in 10 to 12 hours a day 4 to 5 days a week. I have been thinking about becoming an owner operator for about a year now and I came across your video about the time you pulled a intermodal load from Illinois to indiana and how good the money was. My question to you is how do you get started p...
In January 2015, LIST researchers set up the scenario and management of intermodal transport trials, as part of the European Interreg IVB project Weastflows. Its objective was to demonstrate the potential of the existing intermodal connections in the North-West Europe through two real-life scenarios using containerised transport between Bettembourg in Luxembourg and Ballina in Ireland. www.list.lu/en/project/weastflows/

Had to go to one of the Chicago area intermodal yards to drop a container, so here is an example of what it's like inside a yard.
September 15th, 2017 A crew change takes place after an inbound intermodal freight train arrives in the North Charleston yard. The new crew then begins to break up the train into manageable sections. At the end of the first section a couple of conductors ride the last car into the yard. Intermodal cars are moved into sidings beyond the bridge before being repossession for the reach stacker to extract the containers. Some of the intermodal freight is also shunted to one of the Charleston ports and loaded onto container ships. A bonus in the video was also having a D9-40CW diesel parked in a small siding as the intermodal freight train passed behind it. Engines: NS 9321, NS 1030, NS 9410, NS 9141

This video is a compilation of all the freight trains seen at Hamburg - Harburg train station from about 9:50am to 11:50am, Tuesday June 16, 2015 Hamburg - Harburg station is located about 10km south-east of downtown Hamburg, Germany and is a major passenger railway station. It is also located between the Port of Hamburg (One of Europe's busiest) and a major rail freight marshalling yard just south of Hamburg - Harburg station making it a hot spot for freight traffic.

Session 1 of the Workshop: Intermodal Transport and Supply Chains: Moving the Global Economy. Global supply chains have experienced profound change over recent decades. Freight volumes and container traffic in particular have grown strongly with the intensification of global trade and the geographic dispersion of production. The industrial organisation of the sector has evolved rapidly with many agents along the supply chain engaged in horizontal and vertical integration of activities. This has increased efficiency in the movement of cargo and seen the emergence of some very large companies, including logistics businesses operating across the world and maritime shipping companies controlling large assets and operating globally. The business environment in which these firms ope...

I try to film as many of the trains that I catch, but not all of them get their own videos. This is a compilation of some of the interesting trains that I was able to film in 2016. We see the BNSF Provo-Denver Manifest, a unit potash train rerouted through Wyoming because of the closure of the Moffatt Tunnel, a stack train rerouted over the Sharp Sub due to a burned-out traction motor on the Lynndyl Sub, and even some coal trains rerouted over the Sharp Sub during the February 2017 floods in Nevada and California. Photographs and the stories of most of these trains can be seen on the Desert Empire Project facebook page or at http://desertempireproject.blogspot.com/ Tools: Canon T3i with Rode Videomicro microphone and GoPro Hero.

[Taken on 8-2-13 with guitars14] Here we have CSX coming through Marietta slowly meeting the CSX mixed freight train that was stopped because of a train accident at Waverly Ave. This train had to go slowly because of the stopped train. The conductor flagged the train through the busy crossings. Like ems318 on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ems318
