Container Load Matching:
Demand for freight transportation in America is increasing in line with our growing population and greater post-recession economic activity. As a result, the U.S. is experiencing more congestion at our borders, our seaports, and on our major surface transportation corridors. During the course of one year, over 19 billion tons of freight, valued at over $13 trillion, was carried over 4.4 trillion ton miles in the U.S.
The U.S. transportation system currently moves over 50 million tons of freight worth $36 billion dollars each day on the Nation's transportation network. By 2035, tons transported overall are expected to double to over 100 million, placing incomparable pressure on our domestic transportation network.
Container load matching is a concept whereby Jetstream Xpress will dray your container to you and use that same container to move freight back to the port for export for you or other customers helping to reduce your cost and increase your organization's sustainability efforts.
If you are in the retail business and have distribution centers for importing goods in containers and having to service your stores, let Jetstream Xpress show you how to use empty shipping containers to make store deliveries.
Tractor trailers today get 5 to 5.5 miles per gallon of fuel. Load matching containers helps keep overall miles driven down, substantially reducing your and the nation's overall "carbon footprint." It also helps to relieve congestion on the nation's highways.
Jetstream Xpress has the ability to track your shipments through our brokerage division and the ability to give you the metrics needed to show your upper management team how your helping with sustainability efforts at your organization.
Let us put this expertise to work for you. For more information on how Jetstream Xpress can support container load matching for your organization, email us at CustomerService@JetstreamXpress.com or contact our Partnership Department at 1-800-627-1612.
