Total intermodal volumes climbed 7.2% year-over-year in the 1Q 2018 . . . strongest growth in four years.
Also interesting to note that 95% of all manufactured goods at one point are moved in a container, and at $40 billion, the North American intermodal markets is the largest in the world.
If you're in the intermodal industry or serving it as a tire dealer, we have a tire for you! The IM105 container chassis tire is a fuel-efficient, SmartWay verified and CARB compliant low rolling resistant tire.
Furthermore, it is engineered with additional ozone protection, which is very important for intermodal applications which tend to use tires much longer than typical long haul and regional applications.
Backed by the standard Double Coin warranty, the IM105 is available in two sizes: 11R22.5 and 295/75R22.5, both with Load Range G and an 8.25 RIM listing.
When a customer is buying a new chassis or refurbishing an old chassis, the IM105 is the perfect replacement for bias-ply tires – meeting both federal safety and fuel efficiency standards. It also delivers exceptional value that will benefit an intermodal operation.
