BGI Worldwide Logistics is a leading rail freight forwarder offering rail freight services throughout the U.S. and Canada. Rail appears like a full truckload, door-to-door service. A rail container is delivered by truck to the shipper’s dock for loading. Once loaded, the container is picked up and transported by truck to the nearest rail service center. The shipment travels via rail to the closest rail ramp, where the rail container is transferred via truck to the final destination.
Moving freight throughout North America by an intermodal carrier (rail and truck) cuts costs, while increasing security and reducing loss. Plus, it’s environmentally friendly because less carbon-based fuel is used. Typical transit time for coast-to-coast delivery is 7 to 10 days, with trains operating on a regularly scheduled service throughout North America. Rail freight is monitored and tracked from origin to destination.
