The Commercial Carrier Journal — a sister publication of Overdrive — named Boyd Bros. Transportation its 2013 CCJ Innovator of the Year. The award recognizes trucking operations that have demonstrated true innovation in trucking management. Boyd was recognized for its participation in developing a cutting-edge intermodal flatbed product that boosts capacity by allowing industrial freight to be transported by railroad. The product is an open-top flatbed unit that is transported over short distances via highway on a chassis. Once inside an intermodal yard the flatbed unit is lifted onto intermodal trains for a safe transport. Boyd Intermodal worked in conjunction with Raildecks Intermodal to create this system.
