J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc. (NASDAQ:JBHT) has released a white paper detailing how shippers can benefit by choosing intermodal to help manage their supply chains.

"Over the past several years, the railroads have invested billions to improve their networks and infrastructure. The resulting improvements in rail reliability, speeds, and service levels are substantial," explained Terrence Matthews, executive vice president and president of J.B. Hunt's intermodal division. "Coupled with scalable capacity and predictable schedules, intermodal's overall cost effectiveness makes it a must-have for shippers managing supply chain efficiencies and costs."

The white paper discusses rail infrastructure investments and looks at the improved, more consistent service that has resulted overall. In addition, it explores the impact multiple factors such as electronic logging device (ELD) mandates, driver staffing, fuel costs, and environmental footprint have on intermodal shipping decisions.
