Are you interested in moving intermodal freight and expanding your owner operator business? Download the free DrayNow app from the App Store or Google Play store, or click the button below.

The DrayNow app has local intermodal loads for owner operators all over the country. For anyone unaware, intermodal loads typically start at a rail, involve delivering freight to a secondary location, usually local, and then bringing the container back to the rail. This type of trucking keeps truck drivers only within a certain area, as opposed to over-the-road trucking where shipping lanes can be thousands of miles between the origin and destination.

Once signed up with the DrayNow app, an owner operator will be fully registered and qualified to run intermodal loads in any part of the country. Through the app, users can choose the locations where they would like to see intermodal freight. For carriers who are running long-haul loads across the U.S. and are looking for shorter loads to run before heading back home, we’ve made it easier than ever to find loads in multiple locations.

Finding Intermodal Loads in Multiple Markets

With our Multi-Market Select feature, carriers are able to see intermodal loads in as many markets as they’d like at one time and in one view. After selecting the markets that they would like to see, all loads in these locations will be available on the home screen of the app.

Let’s say that a carrier is running loads in between Memphis and Atlanta. They could set their app preferences so that they can view loads in both the Memphis and Atlanta markets. The app will display exactly where the trip starts and finishes so that they can understand if that load will work for their operation. The same scenario could apply for carriers in between Chicago & St. Louis, Los Angeles & Northern California, etc. For states that have multiple intermodal markets such as Pennsylvania and Ohio, the Multi-Market select feature is a good tool to see what’s available statewide.

The Benefits of Intermodal Trucking

Long-haul truck drivers can benefit from running intermodal loads when possible. These loads are all local and pay more per mile than over-the-road loads. These trips also require a lot less fuel due to the limited mileage involved. If a carrier cannot find a well-paying long-haul trip that brings them closer to home, the empty miles driving back will prove costly.

All in all, intermodal loads are not limited to the truck drivers who happen to live near a rail. Picking up local trips after running long-haul freight can be a great way to make extra money before heading home.
