Many shippers are surprised to find there can be a significant cost and transit improvement by using domestic intermodal versus inland international intermodal services. In some lanes, IDS has been able to reduce customer transit times by as much as 50%. Another benefit of transloading comes from the additional cube a 53' domestic container has over its' 40' international couterpart. The added cube essentially makes every 4th container move for free.
