Investments in intermodal rail will be one of the catalysts for increased cargo volume at the Port of Mobile, which is served by five Class I's, according to the Alabama State Port Authority. "Our lead project is the Intermodal Container Transfer Facility that will provide, by 2015, an intermodal rail option to our shippers in North Alabama, Tennessee and surrounding states," said ASPA Director and CEO James Lyons. "With continued investment in intermodal and transportation infrastructure, I can see these [cargo volume] figures only getting bigger."
