Transit time & Reliability
When compared with Maritime Transport, Intermodal Transportation is considered faster, when compared with Road Transport, Intermodal Transportation provides the same period of time. It also provides service which removes problems such as transition densities, import-export permits, etc.
When we compare with 40’ Sea Containers, 45’ HCPW equipment which is designed appropriate to Ro-Ro and Railway transport modes provides 20 % volume advantage and, as it is on the highway, 33 EURO pallets can be loaded in one row, 66 EURO pallets can be loaded in double row. 45’ HCPW is used as a cost-effective and sustainable product and it is appropriate for the companies that face tonnage and volume problems.
