The Environmental Choice
As environmental standards and fuel costs have increased, rail transportation has become a more important part of today’s supply chain. If you are concerned with solutions that are efficient and environmentally responsible, rail transportation is now the obvious choice.
A gallon of diesel fuel moves one ton of freight an average of 406 miles by Rail, which is three times more fuel-efficient than trucks. Efficient use of fuel means less cost, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions and pollution.
Moving more freight by rail also reduces traffic congestion, improving air quality and automobile fuel efficiency. A single intermodal train can take 280 trucks (equal to 1,100 cars) off congested highways, and trains carrying other types of freight can take up to 500 trucks off the highway. It is estimated that switching 85 percent of long-haul trucking to rail could reduce U.S. oil consumption by almost 12 percent and total U.S. emissions by about 4 percent.
