What is Intermodal Container Transfer Facility (ICTF)?

An Intermodal Container Transfer Facility (ICTF) is a transportation hub that facilitates the transfer of cargo between different modes of transportation, such as between trains and trucks or between ships and trains. These facilities are typically located near major transportation routes and have specialized equipment, such as cranes and container handling systems, to enable the efficient transfer of cargo between different modes of transportation.
