Intermodal Trucking Jobs
Intermodal trucking uses two types of transportation (truck and railway) to move freight from one place to another. As an intermodal driver with Swift, you'll haul the freight during the first and final legs of the journey, while the train will handle the freight during the second leg (which is usually the long-haul portion of the trip).
Intermodal trucking jobs at Swift are available for company drivers and offer a wide range of benefits, including more consistent freight, routes and contacts, and a more consistent home schedule.
Because drivers work in tandem with major rail hubs to serve our clients, our intermodal trucking jobs are only available in certain areas. However, because we operate 25 intermodal hubs and have a network across 28 states and three Canadian provinces, finding a job near you is probably easier than you think.
