Going intermodal and using rail is a big thing shippers can do now to reduce emissions. Some have estimated that intermodal is 1.5 to 2.5 times more efficient than over-the-road options.

Lew and Gomez discuss how big shippers can utilize the rail networks as alternatives to trucking, even if it seems more complicated on the front end. Big investments are being made in the intermodal space and the future of green transport may lay in battery-powered locomotives.
