Intermodal Flexitank Solution by Interdom LLC, a subsidiary of Odyssey Logistics & Technology
Rail intermodal transportation offers a solution to the current driver shortages, and capacity constraints impacting the logistics industry.
No other industry is getting hit harder by these capacity issues than the bulk liquid industry, both chemical and food-grade. The increased certifications and training that drivers need makes it even more difficult to find long haul drivers for these commodities.
When utilizing intermodal, drivers are only required for short, regional trips to/from depots, loading/delivery points and intermodal rail facilities, thus reducing on the scarce driver resources.
What differentiates our service offering for the bulk liquid industry is that we have combined the world-class expertise and industry partnerships of Interdom LLC, subsidiary of Odyssey Logistics, with our patent pending flexitank technology & process to provide a complete intermodal flexitank solution. Our new flexitank technology works in both a 20 and 40 ft. ocean container and is approved by the AAR as well as most individual Class 1 railroads (NS, CSX, BNSF, CN and UP).
Our experts are with you every step of the complete Door-to-Done™ solution.
Interdom holds international rail intermodal contracts with all the Class 1 railroads and can provide rail intermodal services throughout North America. Interdom provides the flexitank, the 20’ or 40’ intermodal equipment, flexitank preparation, door pick-up, rail line haul and door delivery.
Disposal of the flexitank is coordinated with a recycling company at destination.
