Seamless two-day intermodal rail service helps customers reach South Florida markets
Jacksonville, Florida – September 18, 2014 – Florida East Coast Railway (FECR) is expanding its services to include intermodal rail transportation between Charlotte, North Carolina and a number of locations in South Florida. The company’s Piedmont Express service is available five days a week, utilizing FECR’s assets.
This seamless two-day service allows customers to select from a variety of pickup and delivery options, including door-to-door, ramp-to-door, and ramp-to-ramp. This service provides FECR customers with another option to get their freight to the growing South Florida market, efficiently and effectively. With the addition of the Piedmont Express routes, customers can now grow their business to South Florida in a cost effective manner.
“We are pleased to offer our reliable intermodal service to customers moving freight between the Carolinas and South Florida,” said James R. Hertwig, President and CEO. “On average, for every four southbound shipments arriving in South Florida, there is only one northbound shipment. This imbalance can be challenging; however, FECR’s Piedmont Express in FECR’s containers provides a cost-effective option for customers in the Carolinas.”
