SmartWay High Performers: Multimodal Carriers

USEPA SmartWay LogoMultimodal carriers that qualify for the SmartWay High Performer multimodal carrier list move goods using different modes, such as truck and rail, and provide their services under a single contract.  Multimodal transporters have the opportunity to maximize the efficiency of each mode used to ship goods.

For example, multimodal carriers consolidate and then optimize shipments along the most efficient route. Shipments move from door-to-door, utilizing truck, rail, ocean and air transportation to minimize time, costs, and fuel use on their way to the end recipient. Though challenging, the benefits of multimodal freight transportation may include lower costs and less impact on the environment, among others.
