International Intermodal Center

Rail Cargo Center


The International Intermodal Center provides a single hub location specializing in receiving, transferring, storing, and distributing international and domestic cargo via rail and highway. The International Intermodal Center (IIC) opened in 1986 in the Global Logistics Park at the Port of Huntsville. The IIC rail terminal is served by Norfolk Southern, with dedicated stack train service to/from both east coast and west coast ports. U.S. Customs and Border Protection port inspectors, USDA inspectors, freight forwarders, and customs brokers are all located on-site. Highly accessible, via the interstate highway system, the Port of Huntsville is strategically located to serve the Tennessee Valley region and beyond.
