Rail transloading is the process of moving freight using multiple different transportation methods. This particular approach to moving freight can often be seen as time consuming and wasteful, but in reality the utilization of several different types of transportation can actually save your company a substantial amount of money.
By transporting freight via railways, you not only increase the amount of product that you are able to move, but you also reduce the amount of fuel required to move it. This not only positively impacts your bottom line, but also the environment.
Rail Transloading Checklist
To determine whether or not rail transloading could be beneficial for your business, please take a look at the following list of considerations:
- You ship three or more truckloads to any single destination within a week
- It is becoming more challenging to get a standard truck to move your freight
- You ship freight to or from the Midwest
- Your suppliers and/or customers are accessible by rail
- Your transportation prices increased dramatically in recent years
- You manage your own logistics
- Your company or your customers measure their carbon footprint
If any or all of the above statements apply to you and your business, then rail transloading could be a very viable option for you.
