Rail Cars for Sale – Commercial Use
Many companies who deal with shipping large quantities of commodities use rail cars because of the greater control they have over the supply chain. Rail Cars give you direct control over the movement of inventory because you can move commodities forward to holding yards that may be closer to distribution centers and customer factories. You know where your commodities are, what time they leave and arrive and how your commodities are handled every step of the way.
When using rail cars for commercial uses, you can lease or own the rail car you prefer and that will work well with your product. With leasing or owning a rail car shippers are not subject to the vagaries of supply and demand from other users that rent rail cars.
Financial Savings with Commerical Rail Cars
Shippers find that there are savings when sending products by rail car. Railroads typically offer discounted rates to shippers who have their own cars. Keep in mind that rail cars/trains burn less fuel per ton-mile than trucks. According to the Association of American Railroads (AAR), freight railroads can move one ton of freight an average of 479 miles on a single gallon of fuel. On top of that, using rail transport over road transport can lower greenhouse gas emissions by 75%. If you are a company looking to ship in a more environmentally friendly way, rail transportation is a great option.
