Why Choose Rail Freight Shipping?

Although many believe rail freight shipping is no longer relevant, a few obvious benefits should not be overlooked:

  • Ability to easily transport heavy loads. Rail transport is able to handle a higher weight per load than truck. Whether it is agriculture, consumer goods, machinery, or other commodities, it is the most economical and efficient solution for large, long-distance shipments.
  • Cost effective. Rail can move more cargo per gallon than truck and requires less manpower to operate each load compared to trucks.
  • Greater volume. More freight tonnage can fit into a rail container than truck equipment.

Any company seeking to frequently move large quantities of goods and commodities will greatly benefit from rail freight transport.

Cargo Transport by Rail: The Process

The process of transporting goods across the country’s vast network of railroads is not as simple as it may appear. Many key players and relationships are involved that work together to ensure your cargo arrives at its destination. Little experience in railroad logistics can be the difference between a successful shipment and lost goods. To mitigate risk and reduce costs, turn to the experts of Global Gateway Logistics.
