Why Ship by Railcar?

While most people tend to only consider different types of trucks for freight shipping purposes, shipping by railcar can help maximize supply chain efficiency, especially for larger shipments. In fact, one of the main benefits of shipping by train is that trains can carry higher volumes of goods than trucks can, which helps significantly reduce overhead costs. Railcar shipping is also a much more environmentally friendly option for freight shipping, compared to shipping by road, as trains are more fuel efficient than trucks.
