Due to factors involving the trucking industry, two intermodal companies have implemented a $300 per container surcharge fee. The fee does not apply to intermodal cargo moving under the shipper’s nominated truckers. The primary challenges the industry is facing are: The Federal mandate for Electronic Logging Devices, driver shortage and increased cost of operations, and severe weather in some markets. Other companies are expected to follow suit.
