Rail Shipping Is More Cost-Effective
Rail shipping is much more cost-effective than using trucks or other types of shipping methods over long distances. Rail cars can typically hold four times as much freight as a truck, and trains don’t need to stop. They also aren’t affected by things like traffic or harsh weather. Then there’s also the considerable fuel savings if you have your own fleet of vehicles. This has a significant positive economic impact as well as a positive environmental impact. It also means you can reserve your fleet for other projects instead of driving them cross-country.
Of course, rail shipping is the most efficient way to transport things like shipping containers on land because we can move hundreds at once, but it’s also a great way to move things like pallets that are coming off of a truck, or freight that is of unusual size, or particularly heavy. Most freight will come via truck, board the rail car, and then leave via truck at its destination, whether it’s shipping containers or something smaller. The flexibility offered by our facility allows us to ship a huge variety of commodities long distances for a fraction of the cost of a truck or plane.
