JOC’s U.S. Intermodal Data & Mapping Tool displays pricing and volume data for shipping a 53-foot container by rail within the United States.
The information available via the map can be accessed through three tabs: City to City, Region to Region, and Directional:
- With the City to City tab, users click on an origin city and then choose among available destination cities. The current price is displayed for the selected routing, along with two charts: Percent change vs. the previous month, and Price history over the past year, as well as a table showing the percent change versus 1, 3, and six months ago as well as year to date.
- The Region to Region tab gives pricing and volume data based on an index of all individual lanes by region.
- The Directional tab tracks pricing indices for North to South, South to North, East to West, and West to East lanes.
