The only realibale mode of transportation when moving freight on a long distance basis (more the 500 miles) is rail…here are 7 tips to decide whether or not to move anything by rail.
1-What type of product are you going to move? Is it heavy or lightweight?
2-What is the origin and destination?
3-Is the facility at origin & destination rail-served?
4-Is the volume seasonal or steady?
5-Is it easy to load / unload your product? Do you need special equipment for doing it?
6-How is the packaging of the product?
