  • Economic


    Rail transport can be cheaper than road transport, mainly due to savings in tolls and fuel. Rates are especially economical if the origin and destination of the merchandise are near the rail terminals.
  • Punctual


    Rail / multimodal transport is less affected by weather conditions, traffic jams and traffic congestion, so scheduled transit times are usually kept to. However, transit times are normally longer than for pure road transport, making it a good alternative for non-urgent deliveries.
