RailRunner® is an innovative rail products and services company providing low-cost intermodal transportation solutions to underserved markets worldwide. RailRunner’s unique Terminal Anywhere® system enables shippers to combine the economics of rail with the flexibility of trucking, while linking directly into the international containerized shipping network.
RailRunner intermodal trains are assembled directly from the container-carrying RailRunner highway chassis, using compact specialized rail vehicles called “bogies.” The chassis and container are coupled to the bogie. The highway wheels are raised pneumatically, allowing the highway wheels to clear the track, thus transforming the road vehicle to a rail vehicle in a matter of minutes. Train assembly requires no lifting of the shipping container, and is fast, simple and cost-efficient, comparing favorably with container unit loading times of traditional intermodal.
