GREEN BAY, Wisc. – Schneider announced today that it has added a new intermodal lane via Montreal.
The company has been offering freight services in Montreal for close to five years, and has expanded its intermodal service to customers in the area who struggle to find enough capacity especially in the southern states, Schneider said. It is now offering service to markets in both Florida and Georgia – eliminating the Great Lakes reroute.
“We saw a desire for capacity, especially for our customers in Montreal who would ship containers northeast via intermodal to fill in tough service lanes,” said Jim Filter, Schneider senior vice-president of Intermodal. “This additional lane opens up possibilities for current and new customers to ship product quickly and more efficiently to the Southeast instead of by truck and trailer.”
The company claims a lot of months of planning and preparing the launch of the new lane was necessary to make this happen. The new lane runs along the East Coast to Florida. It also opened service lanes from Montreal to Ohio and St. Louis.
