Intermodal Traffic Fell 2.9% in 3rd Quarter

The Intermodal Association of North America said that during the third quarter of 2021 intermodal volume fell 2.9 percent compared with the same period in 2020.

IANA said international containers posted a 0.9 percent gain while domestic shipments lost 5.7 percent and trailers were down 11.2 percent.

In a news release IANA officials attributed the overall volume loss to supply chain disruptions, but also noted that the decline “was small relative to the size of this year’s earlier gains and in comparison to the previous 15 months of continuous gains.”
