IANA Launches New Resource to Benefit Intermodal Industry

CALVERTON, MD, June 23, 2011 — The Intermodal Association of North America today launched a valuable new information resource to benefit the intermodal freight transportation industry. The new IANA Intermodal Marketplace is an online buyer’s guide that uses powerful search technology that allows users to more easily locate a wealth of intermodal-related products and services.

The IANA Intermodal Marketplace provides an efficient and effective way to browse intermodal offerings. Potential buyers can search within the parameters of the intermodal freight transportation industry by either a keyword-driven search that mirrors traditional search engines, or a category-specific search using a company name, exact phrase or geographic location. Both methods will produce the most relevant results available on the Internet, saving potential buyers valuable time and resources. Enhancing the effectiveness of the IANA Intermodal Marketplace, a downloadable search tool allows users to access the guide right from their desktop.

Not only does the comprehensive IANA Intermodal Marketplace assist intermodal freight transportation providers, it also furnishes industry service providers and suppliers a unique opportunity as well, offering them the ability to easily present their products and services directly to their target market. Featured companies can further connect with users through an enhanced listing that features contact information, a quick email option, location, and links to the company’s Web site and social media pages.

Intermodal industry service providers and suppliers also have the option to highlight specific product offerings in the product spotlight section of the IANA Intermodal Marketplace, where users can learn about new products, innovations and special offers.

For more information on the innovative IANA Intermodal Marketplace, please contact Jim Morrow, assistant vice president, member services, at 301-982-3400, ext.314 or jim.morrow@intermodal.org.
