    May 18, 2017 — The Intermodal Association of North America found that year-over-year international container volume grew 2.9% to 2.14 million units, and domestic traffic increased 1.3% to 1.79 million. “What’s most impressive about the growth rate is that it comes on the heels of a 2% gain in shipments in the [first quarter] of 2016. This suggests that the increase was real growth and not just a bounce back due to weaker comparisons,” the report said.
