Environmentally friendly shipping
Rail shipping is considered a cheaper option than the equivalent road hauls due to the volume and distance economies. Carriers that require regular and frequent movements benefit greatly at lower costs. On the other hand, single containers on their own are also considered as cost-effective on the rail, especially if the container can fit on to a train that is running. Carriers heavily take advantage of commercial opportunities that are in existence in the logistics chain cost of rail freight services, making it possible for them to offer their passengers great benefits.
