Rail freight transport is an affordable method for transporting a great deal of products or goods from one location to another. While it’s not as popular as over-the-road transportation, this method does have an extensive network. According to Freight Rail Works, the combined length of all of America’s freight railways would circle the Earth 5.6 times if laid end-to-end.
The major difference between this mode versus over-the-road transportation is that trucking allows for a greater deal of flexibility in terms of routes. That said, if you’re simply looking to have intermodal containers shipped or moved, this may be an ideal method for your specific shipping needs.
