Truck to Rail
Truck to rail transportation is a key component of our intermodal transportation services. This method of transportation involves the transfer of goods from trucks to rail cars for long-distance transportation.
One of the main advantages of truck to rail transportation is that it can handle large volumes of cargo efficiently. By using rail for long-distance transportation, we can move goods quickly and cost-effectively across the country. It is also a more sustainable option than traditional truck-only transportation since trains emit significantly fewer emissions per ton of cargo transported.
