Rail Freight: Efficient Long Haul Shipping Option

Rail freight shipping is the most economical option for long-distance transportation. Rail freights typically undercut trucking costs by 10-15% when shipping lengths are over 500 miles. Rail freight shipments are more fuel-efficient and can carry larger shipments than a single truck. Extensive intermodal infrastructure built up throughout the US over the decades streamlines the shipping process and reduces loading and unloading time and cost. Direct Drive Logistics are experts in brokering intermodal rail freight and plot out the best course of transport based on your timeline and location.

With modern infrastructure, a coast-to-coast delivery can be completed in just 7 days.  Direct Drive Logistics keeps you updated on shipment location and estimated delivery times throughout the whole process.
