We Are the Intermodal Freight Broker You Can Trust

Intermodal freight transportation incorporates a wide variety of transport modes to move products domestically and internationally. “Intermodal” describes the relationship between trucks, trains, ships, and air freight to find the quickest and most efficient method. Businesses often opt for intermodal forms of shipping when freight needs to travel long distances and the shipper wants to eliminate handling, which in turn can lower costs. And intermodal freight isn’t simply for one-off shipments either. Sheer Logistics can incorporate intermodal services as part of an overall shipping and logistics strategy through our intermodal brokerage services. 

“What companies like ours care about is accountability, accuracy, and completeness—and Sheer displays that.”

Benefits of Intermodal Transportation

Cost Effective

Intermodal shipping is ideal for long-distance shipping since it uses multiple shipping methods. When cargo is shipped over rail or on container ships, it cuts overall costs and uses fewer resources. Carriers also offer low rates and predictable pricing when long-distance shipments can be consolidated into large shipments.


Intermodal shipping eliminates direct handling of your cargo and keeps it separate from other shipments. Ship intermodal containers are sealed at the point of shipment and unsealed when they reach their destination. This means fewer material damages and losses and that your freight will reach its destination exactly as you intend it to. 


Some shipments require personalized attention, and when you come to Sheer Logistics with unique shipping requirements, we always deliver. Intermodal freight is one way we apply customizable solutions to complex real-world shipping needs.

Why Shippers Love Us


An intermodal freight broker specializes in coordinating the movement of goods using multiple modes of transportation, such as truck, rail, ship, and air. They arrange the logistics of shipping cargo from origin to destination, utilizing various carriers and modes to optimize efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Whether intermodal shipping is right for your company depends on several factors including the nature of your goods, distance, time constraints, and cost considerations. Intermodal can be beneficial for companies shipping large volumes over long distances, seeking cost savings and environmental benefits. However, it may not be suitable for time-sensitive shipments or those requiring specialized handling. Consulting with a logistics expert like Sheer can help determine if intermodal shipping aligns with your company’s needs and goals.

Overall, intermodal freight offers a more integrated, efficient, and flexible approach to transporting goods compared to traditional methods, which often rely on single-mode transport and may be less adaptable to changing logistics needs.

Challenges and limitations of intermodal freight include complexities in coordination between different modes of transportation, potential disruptions in supply chains due to varying infrastructure standards across regions, and the need for significant investment in intermodal terminals and equipment. Additionally, regulatory and administrative barriers can hinder the seamless movement of goods, and specialized handling requirements for certain types of cargo may pose logistical challenges.
