What You Should Know About Moving Railroad Cars

Railroad cars, sometimes called railcars or train cars, are an integral component to American commerce. Used for a number of reasons, such as to haul passengers or freight, railroad cars fill a basic need for bulk shipping and travel by land. Freight cars come in an assortment of types, including the boxcar, flat car, and tank car. Boxcars can be refrigerated or not, depending on their function within your business. A standard boxcar has approximately 3.5 times the loading capacity of a semi-trailer, making it much more efficient overland option for many companies. For big, bulky loads, the best choice is often a flatcar, and tank cars are used to transport liquids and gas.

Whatever you need your railroad cars for, you need to have a professional shipping specialist in charge of transporting them.
