Intermodal Metals (CMI Logistics LLC): Truck Transportation

Motor carriers are a critical part of intermodal transportation, and CMI has established long-term partnerships with qualified flatbed and van carriers to provide superior service to our customers. These relationships complement our in-house motor carrier, Steel Wheel Trucking, which provides flatbed and dray services.

Our partner carriers are experienced metal haulers, outfitted with proper equipment and employing drivers who are properly trained in load securement and tarping procedures. We qualify and monitor our truck carriers’ performance based on:

  • Safety
  • Damage prevention
  • Transit time
  • Cost

Our carriers must meet these criteria and maintain the standards set by CMI for our customers. We also provide:

  • Container drayage to and from our transload facilities
  • Transportation management services for longer-haul freight
  • Local flatbed movement on company equipment for our intermodal customers and warehousing customers alike
