RAIL

From advanced remote-controlled technology to satellite tracking and GPS monitoring, freight rail offers around the clock validated, shipment visibility. Such logistics expertise allows rail to rival truck service for distances as short as 800 kilometers.

Nearly everything in our daily lives is moved by rail—whether it’s a finished product, raw good or both. Railroads annually haul an average of 117 million carloads of agricultural and soy products, including wheat, corn and soybeans; 1.5 million carloads of countless food products, and more than 2 million carloads of chemicals.

Rail also can accommodate a variety of liquids, in addition to automobiles and auto parts.

Traditionally, rail has a strong safety record.

Rail transport reduces highway congestion, thus lowering emissions and shrinking a company’s carbon footprint. In fact, one train can carry the freight of 280 or more trucks. Railroads also are, on average, four times more fuel efficient than trucks. One train moves a ton of freight an average of 480 miles on a single gallon of fuel.
