Union Pacific Railroad Adds Premium Intermodal Service
June 17, 2014
Union Pacific has increased the frequency of two intermodal services: Portland-Chicago and Northern California-Chicago. Both are part of Union Pacific's top-tier "premium" intermodal service, with four-day delivery in the morning.
The Portland-Chicago service, called Portland Premium, operates six days per week westbound and five days per week eastbound.
The Northern California-Chicago service, called NorCal, connects Chicago and the Northern California region, using Union Pacific's Oakland and Lathrop intermodal ramps, and operates between five and seven days per week depending on direction and specific origin/destination points.
Intermodal customers using these enhanced service lanes have access to EMP and UMAX equipment, the largest rail-owned container fleet in North America, according to the company. In addition, wholesale door-to-door transportation options are available via Union Pacific subsidiary Streamline.
Union Pacific's Intermodal team provides a wide range of multi-modal transportation solutions for both domestic and international freight.
