Rail News: Intermodal

Florida East Coast Railway is Anheuser Busch's top intermodal carrier


Anheuser Busch recently named Florida East Coast Railway L.L.C. (FEC) its 2011 intermodal carrier of the year.

The award is based on Anheuser Busch’s cumulative ranking of key transportation and operational metrics, including on-time pickup percentage, average payload per shipment, trailer pool compliance and loaded trailer aging. The 351-mile regional ranked first in all metrics, FEC officials said a prepared statement.
The railroad provides door-to-door intermodal service from Anheuser Busch’s Jacksonville, Fla., brewery to multiple wholesalers in south Florida. The shippers’ largest intermodal carrier, FEC completed nearly 8,000 shipments of beer and trade return loads in 2011.

“Our success with Anheuser Busch proves there is value in short-haul intermodal moves and challenges the belief that intermodal moves can only be successful on long-haul routes,” said FEC President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Hertwig.
