Rail Freight solutions and benefits
We have a team of rail freight specialists who offer effective rail transportation solutions, delivering a host of advantages that can enhance your supply chain performance.
High Level of security
Based on data, theft incidents from containers transported by rail freight are comparatively infrequent due to the difficulty for perpetrators to approach a moving train and remove cargo from containers on rail wagons. Conversely, theft occurrences from trucks parked at rest areas are more prevalent since they are more accessible targets for criminals.
Our transportation services employ containers and trailers that are suitable for both road and rail freight, enabling effortless multimodal transport. This obviates the need for unloading and loading cargo at intermediate points since the container or trailer can be transferred from train to truck, and vice versa, as necessary. Furthermore, CTI offers the convenience of partial load trailers or containers, optimizing transportation efficiency by consolidating your goods with those of other customers.
Rail freight is recognized as an environmentally sustainable mode of transportation because of its electric-powered operation and significant cargo capacity. In contrast to other transport modes, rail freight generates substantially lower levels of CO2 emissions, making it a highly eco-friendly choice.
