USA Truck signs intermodal deal with BNSF
BNSF Railway will haul private 53-foot domestic intermodal containers for USA Truck under a long-term agreement, the Van Buren, Ark.-based trucking company said Wednesday.
USA Truck entered the intermodal arena in December 2007. Intermodal revenue grew 69 percent in 2009 and 50 percent in the first half of 2010, most of it from trailer-on-flat car service.
Offering private containers gives customers more service options, and enables USA Truck to diversify its intermodal business, the company said.
