Infinity Intermodal recently launched an expedited temperature-controlled intermodal service from Salt Lake City UT to Chicago IL, with return service from Chicago to Salt Lake.
The new service takes three days door-to-door and allows Infinity Intermodal to provide refrigerated intermodal service throughout the greater Salt Lake City market, including areas of southern Idaho such as Pocatello, Twin Falls, Heyburn, Burley, American Falls, Jerome and Idaho Falls, the company said.
Additionally, Paul Goss, a member of Infinity’s board of directors, has assumed the role of president and CEO, and Nate Lawson was promoted to vice president of freight services and operations. Goss is a rail and transportation industry veteran with more than 30 years of experience managing rail, trucking, transportation and freight equipment assets and operating platforms. Lawson has worked for Infinity since its inception in various roles and capacities in finance, pricing, operations and marketing.
“We are excited to offer shippers and receivers expanded coverage across the greater Pacific Northwest with our expedited refrigerated intermodal service focusing on full truckload quantities of temp-controlled products,” said Goss.
The management changes and new Salt Lake City service follow a name change earlier this year to Infinity Intermodal (from Infinity Transportation Logistics) to better reflect that the company’s identity as an asset-based, temp-controlled, full truckload intermodal carrier.
The Salt Lake City-Chicago service is the second new intermodal lane Infinity Intermodal added in less than two years. In 2019, the company developed a new Washington State/Oregon-Minnesota intermodal service.
With the addition of the Salt Lake City-Chicago service, Infinity Intermodal now offers expedited, temperature-controlled, full truckload, door-to-door domestic intermodal service from/to the following Northwest intermodal ramps: Seattle, Portland, Spokane and Salt Lake City to/from the following various Midwest and East Coast areas: Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia and Wisconsin.
Infinity’s expedited refrigerated intermodal service departing from/returning to intermodal ramps in Seattle, Portland, Spokane and Salt Lake City six days per week now provides Northwest shippers and receivers dense service coverage in nearly all of Washington State, most of western and northern Oregon, and a large portion of southern Idaho, with consistent and fast door-to-door service from/to the above mentioned major Midwest and East Coast markets.
The new Salt Lake City intermodal service, along with the Minneapolis intermodal service, also follow Infinity increasing the size of its refrigerated intermodal container fleet in 2019, adding 100 new state-of-the-art containers, as well as staff and building out new space at Crown Center in Kansas City to accommodate demand growth.
Infinity’s door-to-door transit times (from/to Washington State, Oregon, Idaho and Utah) typically run three to four days to/from most Midwest markets, and six to seven days to/from most East Coast markets.
The company utilizes state-of-the-art domestic 53-foot refrigerated intermodal containers to move full truckload volumes of frozen foods and fresh produce, and other temp-controlled/perishable products eastbound from Washington State, Oregon, Idaho and Utah to the Midwest and the East Coast, while for return westbound return service back to Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Utah, Infinity Intermodal hauls full truckload quantities of various frozen, refrigerated and dry products.
