Bulk Rail Freight Solutions
Bulk freight refers to cargo that is shipped loose, or not easily containerised and transported in a sealed container. This can include anything from liquids, to sand and gravel, coal, and heavy equipment, which is oversized. Specifically designed rail carriages can be a great way to move complex items of this nature. In the industry we refer to this type of logistics service as a bulk freight.
Intermodal Shipping Solutions (Rail)
Intermodal quite simply is the term given to freight that utilises multiple forms of transport to traverse the supply chain. In an intermodal shipping model goods are typically housed in a shipping container that is purpose built to sit on a truck, rail carriage or container ship. At each step of the transportation process the container is simply moved from one vehicle type to the next with no repacking of goods required.
