When you get behind the wheel of American Truck Simulator, after many hours of driving on the road, it’s sometimes easy to forget that there are other ways to transport goods and materials. In the Texas DLC, you will have the opportunity to visit intermodal terminals, which are special areas where different modes of transport meet.
If you’re new to the name of this unique area, or just want a quick edit, intermodal is the term used to refer to transportation involving two or more modes of transport. Therefore, terminals serve as places for the quick and safe movement of goods, which are transported in whole trailers or containers without the need for unpacking and repacking, from trains, trucks or ships.
For Texas, in addition to trucks (of course!), Trains play a very important role in this process. Eventually, the advent of local railroads succeeded in changing the entire economy of the state due to the fact that travel was no longer slow and unreliable. That’s why you’ll have the opportunity to see several train stations and miles of busy railroads while driving trucks.
