    Rail freight transport

    If you need to ship goods weighing more than 120 000 lbs, opting for rail freight might be appropriate, among other shipping modes like sea freight. Rail freight transport requires the use of trains, railcars, trucks, and other relevant components. This is basically a type of freight forwarding via land or ground transportation.

    Rail freight transport promises lower carbon footprints, better freight tracking, higher levels of safety, and cheaper expenses on fuel. As freight containers typically travel long distances with no highway congestion, transporting via railways is much safer. It is also more eco-friendly because railcars can bring a larger number of goods in one trip than other transport modes.

    ZGGShip works with top carriers all over the world to provide you with highly cost-effective rail freight transport services. If you’re looking for better freight visibility, safer transport, and nature-friendly freight shipping methods, get a quote from ZGGShip today.


    Frequently Asked Questions

    We offer thousands of shipping container rates for your shipment needs. Whether you're shipping to Europe, Asia, North America, South America, Africa, or Oceania, we have got you covered.

    Freight trains can carry a wide variety of products that need to be transported. Some common goods that are likely to be delivered via rail freight include agricultural and energy products like coal, ore, lumber, and others. Food, chemicals, construction materials, and more types can also be transported via rail freight as well.

    The general rule of thumb is to use rail freight for bulk commodities and heavy shipments. In fact, there are different types of railcars to be used depending on what needs to be transferred. For instance, flatbed cars may be used to transport aircraft.

    Some restrictions may be set in place depending on the laws of your nation and of the destination country. Hazardous products and livestock may not be able to be carried by rail freight due to safety and health issues. As freight trains usually carry huge numbers of goods, getting freight insurance is important, which we at ZGGShip can provide.

    When shipping by rail, the average cost that you have to pay is roughly half of air freight costs and similar to that of sea freight. Remember that many factors can affect your total shipping expenses. You would want to take into account the following factors:

    • Amount of goods to transport
    • FCL or LCL shipping
    • Shipping destination
    • Nature of goods
    • Additional solutions

    ZGGShip may calculate your freight costs by container, just like how we calculate sea freight rates. That’s why whether you choose to ship in Full Container Load (FCL) or Less than Container Load (LCL) matters too. The best thing is that although this is the case, volumetric weight doesn’t apply in rail freight. Surcharges are off-limits too.

    Keep in mind that farther target locations require more astronomical freight prices. Additional services like freight insurance must also be taken into consideration.

    Railway transport is almost similar to other shipping modes, with the only difference being how your goods are transported. There are many factors that may affect your total shipment expenses. You should anticipate the following items in your freight bill.

    • Customs clearance
    • Packaging
    • Pickup
    • Delivery
    • Loading and unloading (LCL)
    • Freight insurance
    • Railway rates
    • Storage
    • Add-on services

    You may have to pay for the loading and unloading of your goods from your container, especially when you choose to transport them using LCL shipping services. Your freight forwarding partner should be able to clearly explain to you whatever expenses will be included in your bill.
