TC&W knows when you ship your freight you can choose rail, highway, air or water.
Find out why shipping via rail is a smart way to move freight.
Shipping via Rail is Environmentally Friendly
Using rail is the most environmentally friendly way to move freight over land. Railroads are roughly four times more fuel efficient than trucks. Shipping freight via rail limits greenhouse gas emissions and increases fuel efficiency, reducing the transportation carbon footprint. In fact, moving freight by rail instead of truck lowers greenhouse gas emissions by 75%.
Rail Freight is Competitively Priced
Since trains are more fuel-efficient than trucks, the cost to ship freight via rail is very price competitive. In fact, shipping by rail uses approximately three times less fuel than trucks, saving in fuel surcharges.
Railcar Carrying Capacity – Greater than Trucks
A rail car can typically handle three to four times more freight than the average truck. In fact, one train can replace several hundred trucks.
