Intermodal Shipping

Put a lid on product damage in your intermodal containers.

Why protecting products in containers is important.

Top view of a cargo ship

When it comes to properly securing container-shipped goods, there are no second chances. Slack action, impacts, and load shifts during transit can result in more than just damaged product.

  • Customer dissatisfaction
  • Rejected loads
  • Added costs for having to replace, salvage, or dispose of product
  • Possible customer penalties and fines
  • Risk of employee injury
  • Lost sales

Intermodal containers present their own set of unique challenges to shippers. Our Down River® Load Securement Specialists have the products, experience, and knowledge to design a loadsecurement system for your specific needs.
