Intermodal Transport

Howard Sheppard, Inc.’s Intermodal Division was established in 2002 and is now one of the largest and most trusted drayage carriers in the Southeast. Serving the Savannah and Charleston ports, we specialize in handling refrigerated containers, primarily frozen poultry and have our own reefer plugs on site. We have our own fleet of new chassis equipped with radial tires, along with our own tri-axle chassis that allow us to handle overweight 20 FT containers as well as ISO containers. We service the entire Southeast, and are permitted to handle overweight containers in GA, AL, FL, MS, LA, SC, NC, TN, KY, IN, and VA. We have over 200 trucks dedicated to our Intermodal division, utilizing both company trucks and Owner Operators. Collectively, our Intermodal team has over 175 years experience and strives to offer the best service in the intermodal industry. Our warehouse in Sandersville allows us to handle our customers' storage, transloading, and distribution needs. In addition, we offer transloading of ISO tanks and liquid bladders to our own liquid tanks or totes. We handle both imports and exports. All of our trucks are permitted to transport overweight containers.

Finally, our Intermodal Division offers container pool management for customers with drop and hook accounts and can also provide jockey trucks on site as needed by our customers.  Our experience and expertise can help reduce our customer’s demurrage, per diem and chassis expense, by increasing efficiency within the container pool.
All of our facilities are securely fenced with an electronic gate and video surveillance. We strive to offer the best quality service in the industry and are dedicated to our customers' continued growth and success.
