Figure 3-3. Tonnage of Trailer-on-Flatcar and Container-on-Flatcar Rail Intermodal Moves: 2009

Modes of transportation frequently work together to move high-vale, time-sensitive cargo. The classic forms of rail intermodal transportation are trailer-on-flatcar and container-on-flatcar, and these are spread throughout the United States. The largest concentrations are on routes between Pacific Coast ports and Chicago, southern California and Texas, and Chicago and New York.
