Intermodal Metals (CMI Logistics LLC): About CMI

CMI Logistics LLC is the leading intermodal distribution company in the metals industry. Through our strategic network of transload facilities, we design global, customized metals distribution programs.

From our corporate office in Palos Heights, IL, our transportation professionals can customize a distribution plan for all types of ferrous and non-ferrous metals products utilizing our patented Load and Roll Pallet (LRP), providing efficient, damage-free transportation into various gateways in North America and throughout the Globe.

Whether its a producer in the Midwest US opening a new account in the Pacific Northwest or a West Coast service center servicing a Southeast manufacturing operation, CMI is the sole-source transportation provider giving transit times similar to truck with costs that are competitive with rail.

Depending upon our customer’s needs, we can provide door-to-door transportation services via flatbed or van in truckload or less-than-truckload shipments.

From the upper most regions of the Northeast to the southwestern manufacturing facilities of Mexico, CMI provides seamless intermodal transportation/distribution services for all metals products.

Key to our nearly 30 years of success has been the patented Load and Roll Pallet, which distributes the weight of the shipment across the floor of a closed ocean container.

Intermodal transportation is just one facet of CMI. We provide complete supply chain solutions to our customers, including our Stock and Release program and CMI’s Pipeline SystemSM, a service that allows our customers to ship as little as 5,000 pounds per day to our various transload destinations, and our International transportation capabilities, which in many instances will allow for reduced material handling as well as shorter transit times.

Whether you are a producer in the Midwest US opening a new account in the Pacific Northwest or a West Coast service center servicing a Southeast manufacturing operation, CMI is your sole-source transportation provider giving you transit times similar to truck with costs that are competitive with rail.
