Infinity Transportation Logistics: Expedited domestic intermodal service in Pacific Northwest

Infinity Transportation Logistics LLC (ITL) is noting increased interest and usage from produce shippers (apples, potatoes, pears, onions, etc.) as a result of improved door-to-door transit times for its expedited temperature-controlled domestic intermodal service to/from Washington state and Oregon.

The expedited service offers departures from and returns to intermodal ramps in Spokane, Wash., Portland, Ore., and Seattle six days per week. Door-to-door transit times are now 4 to 5 days to/from the Midwest and 6 to 7 days to/from various destinations on the East Coast, which is nearly as fast as long-haul trucks, according to the company.

ITL can provide expedited eastbound temperature-controlled, door-to-door domestic intermodal service from Washington state and Oregon to the following destinations or locations: Illinois (greater Chicago and surrounding areas, including western Michigan, southern Wisconsin and northern Indiana); New York (Buffalo area, New York City and its boroughs); Pennsylvania (Chambersburg, Harrisburg, and Philadelphia areas); Maryland (greater Baltimore area); Massachusetts (Boston and Springfield areas); Georgia (greater Atlanta area); and Florida (Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa Bay areas).

ITL recently began providing expedited domestic refrigerated intermodal service from the Washington state/Oregon to Ontario, Canada, and added staff, expanded other services and upgraded systems to keep up with growth. ITL has a service radius of about 160 miles to and from intermodal ramps in Spokane, Portland and Seattle.

The company uses state-of-the-art, 53-foot refrigerated containers to move fresh produce (apples, potatoes, pears, onions, carrots, etc.), frozen foods (i.e. frozen french fries, fish, vegetables, juice concentrate, etc.), and other refrigerated products eastbound from Washington state and Oregon to the Midwest and East Coast. For return westbound service, ITL hauls various refrigerated and temperature-controlled products (i.e. frozen pizza, yogurt, seafood, dough, juice concentrate, etc.) or dry products.
