Because freight transport by rail is mostly electrically powered, this is a much more sustainable form of transport than the more traditional forms of transport such as air and sea freight. Due to the large volumes that a single train can transport, the CO2 emissions are many times lower than with road transport. An additional advantage is that fuel surcharges and fluctuating oil prices are avoided.
The containers and trailers used are compatible with both road and rail transport; also called multimodal transport. This means that there is no need to unload and load at transit points; the container or trailer is easily lifted from the train to the truck as required. DSV also offers less than container load (LCL) containers, where your goods are loaded together with cargo from other customers.
Statistics show that thefts of containers transported by rail are relatively rare, as it is difficult for criminals to get close to a train and extract products from a container on a rail car. In comparison, theft of trucks parked in rest areas is more common because the access is easier.
