The newly booming domestic natural gas industry through fracking and other means has increased supplies and opportunities for petrochemical manufacturing in the U.S. As the nation’s oil and gas boom fuels the growth of the petrochemical industry, transportation and warehousing costs have risen for this sector. These companies are also dealing with a shortage of adequate rail cars and qualified drivers that can safely and legally transport petrochemicals.
Due to all of these factors, intermodal transportation is becoming a preferred method of shipping for the petrochemical industry. Many petrochemical companies engage third party logistics partners or 3PLs to manage the intermodal transportation of goods in order to save time and money. 3rd party logistics partners, such as Global Shipping Services, can help businesses eliminate fixed warehousing costs, and provide the industry expertise necessary to provide more cost-effective intermodal transportation options.
