Rail Shipping is Better for the Environment and Your Bottom Line

With more consumers choosing vendors and suppliers with environmental impact in mind, opting for rail shipping with an experienced rail freight broker like Direct Drive Logistics significantly reduces your carbon footprint. Rail shipping lets you move one ton of freight almost 500 miles on a single gallon of fuel, giving you a serious edge over your competition in environmental responsibility. Even better, choosing rail shipping enables you to ship far more goods at once and save an average of 10-15% on shipping costs compared to trucking when you ship goods over 500 miles.
