BGI Worldwide Logistics is a leading rail freight forwarder. Our seamless trucking and intermodal services are offered domestically across United States, Canada and Mexico borders.
Yes, rail freight can reach your business’ doorstep – it appears seemingly like a full truckload, door-to-door service.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1. A rail container is delivered by truck to the shipper’s dock for loading
Step 2. The loaded container is picked-up by truck and transported to the nearest rail service center
Step 3. The rail freight shipment travels via rail to its predetermined rail ramp
Step 4. At the rail ramp, the rail container is transferred via truck to the final destination.
When shipping overseas, BGI Worldwide Logistics can also accommodate door-to-door delivery through our network of experienced global agents.
BGI Worldwide Logistics moves freight throughout North America by intermodal carriers (trucking and rail) helping customers cut costs. Other benefits include increased security and reducing loss. Additionally, less carbon-based fuel is used, which means intermodal transport is better for the environment.
CSX, along with others in the rail industry, repeatedly voice this simple claim:
“Railroads are the most environmentally friendly way to move freight across land. Trains can move one ton of freight nearly 500 miles on a single gallon of fuel. Efficient use of fuel means less greenhouse gases or carbon emissions for our planet.”
Typical transit time for coast-to-coast delivery is 7 to 10 days. Trains operate on a regularly scheduled service throughout North America. BGI offers shipment tracking so your rail freight is monitored from origin to destination.
