End-to-end rail logistics and rail freight transport solutions, providing you with a dependable and consistent way to move even the most complex freight.

What is rail logistics?

When your shipping needs include more than 120,000 pounds of material shipped at the same time to the same place, railcar shipping might be an option for you. Since railcar transportation is often cheaper and more eco-friendly than over-the-road (OTR) shipping, it is worth considering this mode.

Rail logistics shipping rates

Railcar freight rates tend to be lower than truck rates. Due to the large volume of goods being moved, the price per railcar looks high, but since it replaces 3 – 4 trucks, the effective rate is low. Your rail quote will depend on the size and dimensions of the shipment, commodity, railcar type, route, and lane.
