Transportation of car semi-trailers is an attractive mode of transportation, which guarantees fast and reliable freight delivery for all actors in the logistics chain and which reinforces the advantages of each of these modes: economy and environmental friendliness of rail transport when carrying cargo over long distances, and the flexibility of vehicle transport when delivering cargo door-to-door.
How are semi-trailers transported by rail?
Truck semi-trailers are safely lifted onto a train platform with the use of special equipment, while at the end of the rail trip, at the intermodal terminals, they are moved back onto the trucks for the “last mile” service, i.e., for delivery of the goods to the customer’s door.
