Learn About:

Please join in a discussion around the experience Medtronic (a global medical device company) has traveled on to adjust and secure capacity, control costs,  sustain savings, manage risk and deliver predictable cycle time when intermodal rail is incorporated into their unique supply chain.  We plan to provide real time operational examples where intermodal has truly provided value and where there is still a limited opportunity.
