Truck vs. Rail Analysis

Truck vs. Rail Analysis


We are not just an “over the road” transportation company.

Each time we receive a quote request we perform a Truck vs. Rail analysis.  Time and again we have found that by thinking outside the "trucking" box we are able to provide our customers with tremendous savings simply by utilizing multiple modes of transportation.  The specialized freight consultants at OversizedShipping have a long history of working together with the seven major North American railroads, most shortline railroads, and multiple barge companies – relationships that offer direct benefits to our customers.   

For example, most states will refuse to grant over-the-road permits for exceptionally large or heavy loads until it is demonstrated why alternative modes of transportation cannot be used.  OversizedShipping is able to determine the cost, transit time and viability of each transportation mode to not only present you with a complete list of shipping options, but also to help eliminate expensive and disruptive delays.
