PTI Launches REDmodal Service
Green Bay WI – Paper Transport, Inc. has launched REDmodal, an asset-based domestic door-to-door intermodal service. REDmodal distinguishes itself from other IMCs with its use of Paper Transport, Inc.’s company-owned trucks and company employed drivers in large intermodal markets to service the drayage on their domestic intermodal shipments.
Intermodal shipments across the entire US will be handled with the service. However, Paper Transport, Inc. is rolling out the REDmodal service with company drivers in Chicago, IL; St. Louis, MO; Dallas, TX; Central OH; Atlanta, GA; Central FL; and Jacksonville, FL. The Paper Transport, Inc. company trucks will supply GPS location services and connectivity to shippers.
The company trucks will handle the rail-owned containers that operate on CSX, Norfolk Southern, the Union Pacific and FEC. Joe Shefchik, Vice President of Business Development notes, “We believe we are the only intermodal provider using company drivers and company owned trucks to move door-to-door shipments in the shared container pools of the railroad. Our customers are benefiting from both service and cost improvements.”
Paper Transport, Inc. notes REDmodal stands for Reliable, Efficient, Dray. They will look for new markets to deploy the REDmodal service as demand develops.
