Intermodal transportation involves the use of more than one mode of transportation for a journey. There are two types of intermodal transportation, intermodal passenger transportation and intermodal freight transportation. Intermodal freight transportation Market solutions refer to the transportation of freight in an intermodal container or vehicle using multiple modes of transportation such as rail, ship, and truck. Traditionally, transportation was done only through trucks and huge vehicles but as the trade became global, modes of transportation have changed. Now shippers require more flexible, safe, and high capacity transportation options. Due to globalization, companies are trading at international level and thousands and thousands tons of various products are shipped daily all over the world. For transportation of such a huge amount of product, reliable and safe transportation mode is required. Intermodal transportation fulfills these requirements as majority of the transportation is done through railways which are not only safe but also reliable.

The best advantage of using intermodal rails is that it reduces the cost. As the delivery path and time for delivery are easily predictable, goods can be delivered much more precisely. Unlike trucks, trains use less fuel and are faster, which makes intermodal transportation much more cost and energy efficient. All these factors are driving the intermodal transportation market that is expected to increase at a very high pace. The major concern when goods are transferred to such distant places includes safety and damage control. This issue is easily solved in intermodal transportation as the goods are transferred into special containers, which can be easily moved from ships to trains to trucks to planes without being repacked.

Freight transportation plays a vital role in the development of any economy. The overall freight transportation system has evolved due to various technological advancements (containerization, vehicle tracking, route manage optimizers, and liquid threat scanners) over the years. Each of the transportation modes be it air, land or water have been influenced and molded to be more cost effective, efficient, and reliable. The intermodal freight transportation is a part of freight management, which involves the use of at least two or more modes to move a particular shipment from its origin to its assigned destination. Global intermodal freight transportation market is estimated to be $12.28 billion in 2014 and is expected to grow to $26.19 billion in 2019, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 16.4% from 2014 to 2019.

Containerization has been the biggest driver for this market. This is because it has eliminated the major risk of intermodal transportation, the probability of cargo getting damaged because of the change in modes. Traditionally, when modes used to change, the goods were unpacked and repacked according to the new vehicle, but due to containerization repackaging is not required. This has resulted as a complete revolution in the transportation industry, increasing the volume of cargos shipped daily. However, the biggest challenge with intermodal freight transportation is that the transportation agencies are still structured around single modes. To eliminate this issue, a new structure needs to be designed, having better communication and collaboration between logistics companies and transportation agencies.

In this report, the market is segmented into solutions, services, mode, verticals, and regions. The solutions are further divided into fleet management, intermodal dispatch, warehouse, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), freight security, and intermodal terminal. The fleet management constitutes of solutions like fuel management, driver safety, vehicle tracking, journey management, and others, which are used to reduce costs, safety, improve competitive edge, and streamline processes. The services market includes consulting services, managed services, and customization services. This market is divided on the basis of geographies which include North America (NA), Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East (MEA), and Latin America.
