The efficiency gains realized by intermodal shippers help to make U.S. businesses more competitive in the global economy.  Freight rail is an integral part of this system, providing affordable and reliable long-haul movement of goods while working cooperatively with competitors like trucks who are better suited to short-haul freight movement.
