Intermodal or Rail

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Expert Intermodal or Rail Shipping

Do you need freight transportation for long distances, hazmat materials, or extremely heavy items? Shipping by train offers huge cost savings over traditional truckload shipping. Not to mention it’s better for the environment too!

Intermodal railway freight shipping involves the combination of freight shipping by rail and truck. Almost always, a rail shipment will need the help of a truck. The truck takes the freight from the rail hub to its final destination.

When you choose Focus West’s intermodal shipping services, you combine convenient truck pick-up and delivery with cost-effective, reliable rail transportation.

And on top of being convenient, our intermodal service is strategic. With well-located terminals, we connect major centers across North America both ​with each other and the rest of the world.

Domestically, we move goods for a wide range of industries. Having achieved status as a low-risk transportation carrier for U.S. imports, we’re able to arrange expedited customs procedures between Canada and the U.S., helping you avoid transportation delays and added expenses.


Save with Intermodal or Rail Transportation

Supplementing your over-the-road shipments with intermodal capacity gives your business a whole new set of advantages. Together, our experts, technology, and intermodal solutions will help minimize the impact of seasonal, environmental, regulatory, and industry factors that could negatively impact your bottom line.

When your freight is moving along major lanes across Canada, Intermodal or Rail options can significantly reduce your freight costs. This is a great option for any freight that has no required delivery time and can afford a longer transit.


Shipping by Intermodal or Rail Shipping is right for you if:

  • Your freight is suitable for standard container sizes—20′, 40′, 53′
  • Your freight ships to the same locations consistently.
  • Your freight is going Cross Canada.
  • Environmental Sustainability is a supply chain initiative for your organization.
  • Your shipments go to and from metro areas or across borders.
  • Your shipments travel 300 miles or more.
  • Security of the shipments is critical.
