Intermodal rail—a transportation mode choice that was to take trucks off the road—is slowing down. Where is it heading? Over several decades, the premise was that railroad intermodal trailer on flat cars (TOFC) and containers mostly on double-stacked well cars (COFC) would grow in volume and therefore reduce highway truck congestion.

First-quarter intermodal traffic posted its highest gains in nearly four years on major U.S. corridors, as trailers continued to outrun container shipments.
