Expedited Intermodal

Not even Doc Brown’s steam engine time machine could help predict the speed and efficiency of today’s expedited intermodal service. Transporting goods by rail certainly isn’t new. Even before the creation of the steam engine, wooden rails were used to move freight from one place to another.
