Rail, also known as Piggyback or Intermodal shipments represent a
very cost effective mode of shipping commodities in truckload
which are not necessarily time sensitive. Intermodal is simply
putting the Van trailer or Container on a rail car and moving by
train. Some ocean containers can be shipped cross-country to avoid
the cost of transloading. Intermodal shipments move via the
nation's railroads and Global Shipping Solution can provide
options for you to consider. Although shipping by rail can be less
expensive than trucking, rail typically has a longer time in
transit. Rail is the preferred mode for those shippers looking for
the absolute cheapest way to move a long distance shipment, and is
more concerned about cost than delivery time. Let GSSI rail
experts discuss your next rail or intermodal move for the rail
