Benefits of Rail-The Environment
Posted On: April 23, 2020

The most environmentally sound way to move freight over land is by rail. Railroads are four times more fuel-efficient than long-haul trucks and a single freight train is the equivalent of nearly 400 trucks that would otherwise travel over already congested and deteriorating highways. As organizations look to achieve business sustainability goals and reduce their supply-chain carbon footprint, many are adding rail as an environmentally responsible alternative to trucks. By providing access to the freight rail network, OmniTRAX enables our customers to be competitive globally in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way to Grow American Communities.
