Intermodal Loads for Owner Operators in California

For carriers that are new to intermodal drayage, this term refers to moving containers to and from the rails or ports to another location such as a warehouse so that the containers can complete the first or last mile of the overall trip. Intermodal loads are all local so that truck drivers are typically staying within a 250-mile radius when moving this freight.

In the Northern California region, intermodal freight is coming out of Union Pacific’s Lathrop location in French Camp, BNSF Stockton and UP Middle Harbor in Oakland, all within the Greater San Francisco Bay Area.

In Southern California, the rails are primarily centered around Los Angeles, with intermodal drayage originating out of many locations, including Union Pacific COI in City of Industry, UP LATC in Los Angeles, UP East Los Angeles, UP ICTF in Long Beach, UP Montebello, BNSF Los Angeles, BNSF Commerce and BNSF San Bernardino over in the Inland Empire. Owner operator trucking companies in Los Angeles who use the DrayNow app will access these rails for any loads that they pick up from the app.
