Direct Rail Shipment
This is the most-often used rail shipment option, where freight is shipped directly from the shipper's rail-served location to the customer's rail-served location.

Rail to Truck Transload
This rail shipment option provides for customers that do not have a rail-served location. Freight is shipped to a transload facility where it is cross-dock loaded into a truck for final delivery. This option allows customers to take advantage of the economic benefits of rail service without having their own rail-served facility. Visit our transload page to learn more.
Rail to Warehouse / Forward Position
This is a perfect option for customers who cannot handle a full railcar load of freight at one time, but would still like to take advantage of the economy of bulk rail shipping. Freight is shipped to a local warehouse, where it is stored and accessed for truck shipments to the customer as product is needed.
For customers who cannot handle a full railcar load of freight, load sharing permits multiple locations of the same customer (or even a conglomerate of multiple customers) to benefit from the cost-savings of rail shipment. Freight is shipped to a central distribution location, where it is transloaded to several trucks and transported to multiple locations.
