How is traveling rail beneficial to our production's needs?
Traveling via rail is 20%-30% cheaper compared to shipping by truck. However, your production would have to have allow longer transit time to utilize the intermodal/rail system. Typically, the intermodal/rail system is 3-5 days longer than traveling over the road.
Can we do it cheaper?
