Who is an Intermediate Carrier?

An intermediate carrier is a transportation company that is responsible for transporting cargo between two other carriers as part of an interline shipment. Intermediate carriers play an important role in the interline shipping process by ensuring that cargo is transported efficiently and on time. These carriers are typically specialized in a particular mode of transportation, such as air, sea, or road, and they work closely with other carriers to ensure that the cargo is transported seamlessly.
