At first glance, intermodal shipping might seem synonymous with full truckload service, but that is not completely true. Although the size of the containers is standard, there are weight differences in the loads that can be carried. A truck can carry 45,000 pounds, but the weight limit for Intermodal Shipping is 42,500 pounds. Failing to understand this difference is the number one problem that leads companies to difficulties.
