When you are trying to get cargo to its destination, you have to look at the freight services that can be used. Rail freight is commonly used to go from coast to coast. Often, intermodal freight will be the best option – and that’s when two modes of freight are used, such as rail shipping and truck transportation.
At Royal Transportation Services, we’ll help you with all of the details. Recognized as a Red Diamond Broker, we have the history and reputation for providing outstanding service.
Rail freight is the use of containers loaded onto a cargo train. A variety of carriers use the rail networks to make deliveries to countless stations around the United States as well as Canada and Mexico. It is a cost-effective way to transport various items because of the low cost of trains versus trucks.
Most transportation needs are met with intermodal freight to ensure that a truck is there at the train station to take it to its final destination. Whether you have full or partial containers, the option is available to you.
