Intermodal is the fastest growing method of transporting many types of goods including electronics, food, building supplies, and paper products. The ability to utilize the best of rail and truck transport provides many benefits, such as reliability, efficiency, safety and perhaps most importantly a reduced carbon footprint in your supply chain (Trains emit 73% less carbon dioxide than trucks!).
As intermodal transportation rises in popularity, logistics providers are rushing to the nearest rail yards to set up their proverbial distribution-center shops. As a forward thinking provider, Nexus has been developing intermodal relationships and strategically positioning warehouses alongside rail yards for many years.
Because of that established presence Nexus' focus lies on elevating the solution, not creating. All three of Nexus' hubs lie along side Class 1 rails, where their long standing relationships save customers time, money and headaches.
According to DC Velocity, one problem new-comers to the rail/intermodal scene are experiencing is the organizational divide between real estate and supply chain operations. Choosing to outsource your warehousing and transportation to a long standing, highly experienced company such as Nexus bypasses this roadblock entirely.
For example, the southeast NexusHub in McDonough, Georgia boasts an experienced workforce operating on a video surveillance monitored campus. The state of the art WMS system, Accellos, allows for total transparency of data. A short distance from the CSX intermodal terminal in Fairburn, the Georgia NexusHub is poised to service the growing manufacturing market in Florida. With over 30 years of experience with boxcar, intermodal and container transportation, Nexus is fully prepared for intermodal's rise to the top.
