The LF could be a key strategic initiative to help states address the need to move freight using modes that are efficient, environmentally-sensitive
and economically viable. Representatives of Intermodal Express have held meetings with USDOT, EPA, DOC, STB, FRA and CEQ to discuss the LF. All federal
agencies were supportive and recognize the significant public benefits of diverting freight from highways to rail. State departments of transportation
along the I-80 corridor (WY, NE, NV, UT) and AASHTO have been supportive.
Transportation logistics is an important economic component to the US economy. The additional intermodal option and transportation network nodes created
by the LF could be a key element of a more efficient, safer and environmentally-friendly freight initiative to help propel the U.S. economy into the future.
Intermodal Express is developing partnerships with global leaders in infrastructure financing and construction, the railroads (UPRR, BNSF) and trucking
firms. Intermodal Express is seeking to expand our strategic partnerships to include other private sector firms as well as coalitions of I-10, I-40 and
80 freight corridor states and USDOT.
