Truck vs. Rail Analysis

Truck vs. Rail Analysis


We are not limited to Over-The-Road (OTR) transportation.

Every time we receive a request to review and price a lane, we perform a Truck vs. Rail (or Barge) analysis. We have found that sometimes we can provide tremendous savings on certain lanes and projects by utilizing modes of transportation outside of the traditional truck-based model.

Our staff has a great deal of experience working with all major North American railroads, numerous shortline railroads, and quite a few barge companies. Most states will refuse to grant OTR permits for exceptionally large or heavy loads until you can demonstrate why an alternate mode of transportation cannot be used. OversizedShipping will head off that complication by determining the cost, transit time, and over-all viability of each shipping method and present those options to you.
