Rail freight is a highly efficient and cost-effective mode of transportation for businesses that need to transport large quantities of goods over long distances. Although road transport is still the preferred mode of domestic freight travel, a large number of freight forwarders are choosing railways for moving their goods.
At KATA Global Logistics, we offer rail freight services as part of our comprehensive logistics solutions, allowing businesses to transport their products domestically and cross-border.
Why should you consider rail freight for your business?
One of the main advantages of rail freight is its cost-effectiveness, especially for businesses that need to transport large quantities of goods.
Railways have a higher capacity to carry heavier loads compared to road freight, enabling them to transport larger quantities
of goods in a single trip. This not only reduces shipping costs but also minimises the need for multiple vehicles, cutting down on fuel expenses and labour costs.
Additionally, rail freight is an eco-friendly option compared to other modes of transportation, such as air and road freight.
In recent years, businesses have been increasingly focused on adopting sustainable practices, including eco-friendly transportation options. Rail freight stands out as an environmentally responsible choice, as it produces significantly fewer carbon emissions compared to road or air transportation.
Trains have a lower carbon footprint per ton-mile of freight, making them a greener alternative for businesses looking to reduce their environmental impact and meet their sustainability goals.
Reliable and efficient
Another advantage of rail freight is its reliability and efficiency. Railways operate on a fixed schedule, allowing businesses to plan their logistics operations with greater accuracy.
Railways are renowned for their reliability in transporting goods. Unlike road transportation, rail freight is not susceptible to traffic congestion, road closures, or weather-related delays, which can significantly impact delivery schedules. Trains operate on fixed schedules and dedicated tracks, ensuring consistent and timely deliveries.
Safety and security
Rail freight also offers a high level of safety and security for transporting goods. The rail industry invests heavily in safety measures, making rail freight one of the safest modes of transportation.
Railways are often fenced and guarded, providing a high level of protection against theft and damage. Additionally, rail freight can be equipped with sophisticated tracking systems to monitor the location and condition of the cargo, providing businesses with real-time information on the status of their products.
KATA Global Logistics ensures adherence to stringent safety protocols, minimising the risk of damage or loss of goods during transit.
