Jacksonville, FL – The Florida East Coast Railway (FECR) is expanding its services to include intermodal rail transportation between Charlotte, North Carolina and a number of locations in South Florida.
The company’s new Piedmont Express service is available five days a week, utilizing FECR’s assets.
The “seamless” two-day service allows customers to select from a variety of pickup and delivery options, including door-to-door, ramp-to-door, and ramp-to-ramp.
“We are pleased to offer our reliable intermodal service to customers moving freight between the Carolinas and South Florida,” said James R. Hertwig, FERC president and CEO.
“On average, for every four southbound shipments arriving in South Florida, there is only one northbound shipment,” he said. “This imbalance can be challenging; however, FECR’s Piedmont Express in FECR’s containers provides a cost-effective option for customers in the Carolinas.”
Based in Jacksonville, Florida, Florida East Coast Railway provides a wide range of services, including carload and door-to-door intermodal solutions across North America.
In addition, FECR connects customers to worldwide locations through its strategic partnerships with Port Miami, Port Everglades and Port of Palm Beach.
