IDS Transportation efficiently connects shippers to intermodal door-to-door rail service with 53' equipment.  Intermodal has evolved to where clients are embracing it as an effective alternative within their supply chain for additional truckload capacity.  IDS offers both standard and expedited services through its various class I railroad relationships.  IDS technology and process makes intermodal look and operate like truck service, while not sacrificing speed for savings over OTR options.  Price and carbon footprint improvements versus OTR has a greening effect to our clients' bottom line and environment.
Outside of converting trucking lanes to intermodal, IDS also provides value added services around its intermodal network.  These services options include LTL consolidation and pooling into major markets, along with transloading ocean containers for import and export business.
