A HISTORY OF INTERMODAL EXPERTISE

In 1938, Radiant Clipper was founded as Clipper Exxpress—North America’s premier provider of “piggyback” rail transportation. We began by contracting flat space on rail cars to transport semi trailers across the continent, thereby eliminating the need for a tractor with every shipment. While our services have expanded since then, and our name has changed, Radiant Clipper continues to focus on rail as a valuable mode of on-time long distance transportation.

A RADIANT LOGISTICS COMPANY

Since 2015, Radiant Clipper has been a proud member of the Radiant Logistics global network—one of the fastest growing logistics networks in North America. Through our parent company, we deliver specialized supply chain solutions with a particular focus on intermodal and rail transportation.

We provide access to over 100,000 temperature-controlled dry goods containers and a fleet of 2,000 rail-ready refrigerated units that move across North America on Class 1 U.S. and Canadian railways. Being part of the Radiant Logistics network enables us to coordinate our shipments with over 6,000 diverse transportation carriers servicing North America.
