Florida East Coast Railway (FECR) is increasing its intermodal capacity by adding new equipment. The company recently acquired 500 new 53-foot containers and 100 chassis. In addition, the company added 50 refrigerated trailers to meet the needs of customers in the perishables market. All of the units will be in service by mid-October 2014.
These assets align with FECR’s strategy to convert existing trailers to containers in order to provide double-stack transportation service. Both the containers and refrigerated trailers are equipped with GPS technology providing real-time tracking capabilities. The refrigerated units are also equipped with systems that provide information about operational performance, including temperature levels.
“We continue to see positive growth in our intermodal business as customers from a variety of industry segments recognize the value we provide,” said James R Hertwig, president and chief executive officer. “With the addition of these new units, we are well-positioned to meet the needs of the marketplace during the upcoming peak shipping season and beyond.”
FECR, based in Jacksonville FL, is committed to providing customers with reliability, flexibility, and connectivity. The company provides a wide range of economical 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 the Florida ports of Port Miami, Port Everglades, and Port of Palm Beach.
