Harrisburg is a major intermodal rail market with plenty of opportunity for local owner operators to find freight and stay local. If you’re unfamiliar with intermodal freight transport, it deals with the transportation of freight via rail. Trucks will then take the freight on and off the rails, which is considered to be the first and last mile.
Even though a lot of the local intermodal loads will be delivered within the state of Pennsylvania, carriers will need to have interstate operating authority. This is because the cargo within the intermodal containers has crossed state lines and needs an interstate carrier to haul the load.
In the area, freight is coming out of the Norfolk Southern Harrisburg yard and NS Rutherford. Not too far away is Chambersburg where freight is coming from the CSX Chambersburg ramp as well as the Norfolk Southern Greencastle ramp. Before running a load, carriers need to make sure that they are signed up with the rail so that they can access the yard on the day of the load.
Owner operators and small fleets looking for local intermodal loads can start by signing up for the free DrayNow app at the link below.
