7 Tips to Move Products by Rail:

Hello all:

This time I would like to talk to you about reducing carbon footprint while saving in the long-haul of movement of goods, thus creating sustainable supplychains:

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?

7-Does the product need to have a proper blocking and bracing to prevent any damages?

I think with this questions, you will be in a better position to assess your actual and potential movements and #carbon #footprint potential savings…

Thank you all for stopping by and for your great questions and comments,

Saul Romero Blake.
