Industry Trends

The bigger and better Panama Canal has changed the game for global shipping. 

The Intermodal Association of North America has reported a positive outlook for Intermodal volumes. Imports are helping drive growth, as well. Analysts have predicted ports on the East Coast will take some market share that has historically gone to their counterparts on the West Coast.

Port operators along the Atlantic seaboard have invested heavily in accommodations for bigger container ships. Improved assets, like towering new cranes, were installed and channels were dredged to better handle the larger vessels that now will be navigating the canal. Many of these upgrades were made anticipating steady, long-term growth.

There's a desire across the industry to capitalize on increasing global shipping volume. Are you ready to seize this rare moment?

VEHICARE is eager to help ensure your vehicles are at peak performance so you can maximize your opportunities during this exciting time in Intermodal commerce.
