Amazon Providing Container Shipping Space

Retail giant Amazon is making space available inside its intermodal containers to other shippers, Trains magazine reported on its website.

The report said this puts Amazon in direct competition with such intermodal marketing companies as J.B. Hunt and Hub Group in providing shipping space inside 53-foot intermodal containers.

A video posted by Amazon on YouTube said it manages loads from dock to dock and plans the transportation moves.

Amazon has a fleet of more than 5,000 containers. The Trains report quoted an industry observer as saying Amazon’s move is a way to make its intermodal operations more efficient because additional companies will be using the network.
