Intermodal traffic is the dominant part of our business. As intermodal volume across North America increases yearly due to increased costs in fuel, driver capacity issues, rules regarding hours of service, and the attractiveness of an economical solution to customers’ needs, Florida East Coast Railway (FECR) has packaged the line-haul rail moves with a drayage service to get the cargo to the customer’s door. FECR and FEC Highway Services offer customers a unique portfolio of services between Atlanta and South Florida. Retail customers count on FECR to provide these transportation services to move their commodities consistently on-time and damage free. FECR interchanges with CSX and Norfolk Southern in Jacksonville bringing intermodal business into Florida from all over the United States.
In June 2013, Logistics Capital & Strategy (formerly Merge Global) published a White Paper on Intermodal Service in South Forida and the benefits of rail over truck. Please click HERE for more information.
