RAIL INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
Intermodal railway freight shipping involves the combination of freight shipping by rail and truck. Almost always, a rail shipment will need the help of a truck. The truck takes the freight from the rail hub to its final destination.
Do you need freight transportation for long distances, hazmat materials, or extremely heavy items? Shipping by train shipping offers huge cost savings over traditional truckload shipping. Not to mention it's better for the environment too!
IS SHIPPING BY RAIL CHEAPER?
The short answer is, yes! When you use a trucking carrier, you pay the fuel, fees, tolls, labor and other associated costs. When you use intermodal services, hundreds of containers are moved at a time. That lowers the cost per load.
