INTERMODAL NEEDS MORE CAPACITY. BUT WILL IT PAY?
Both the ability of the railroads to handle intermodal and its fundamental economics have been called into question. Most railroads remain committed, but there are doubts that still remain. The article examines this two-fold question: Is railroad intermodal capacity - mainly terminal capacity - keeping pace with the rapid growth of the business? and, will the railroads make investments needed to increase terminal capacity or improve intermodal technology so as to maintain or reduce "dwell" time at terminals?
