Rail service has a rich history of driving this country’s economic growth by moving freight across India, yet it is not front of mind as an option in today’s fast moving logistics and supply chain industry.
As such, rail service has been left behind in the way many people think of today’s logistics and supply chain optimization, whether currently using rail service or not.
This blog focuses on bringing awareness to rail logistics service solutions by helping current and potential rail shippers understand there may be a better way for them to access rail services to take advantage of everything this mode has to offer their logistics and supply chain strategy. We will discuss the in’s and out’s of rail service, the companies that serve the market, what the value add services are for shippers and how to get the most from them.
Before digging into the topic of rail services, we do have to start off with discussing intermodal and rail service because they are significantly different and could cloud our discussion for some readers, so for those familiar with differences, please give us your patience over the next few paragraphs.
