Access America’s relationships with many short-line railroads further our ability to offer our customers affordable freight transportation to more locations than our competition. Our team can review your rail project and give you a quick, accurate rail freight quote that is often less expensive than standard over-the-road (OTR) shipping.

Is Rail Shipping Right For You?

Rail transportation offers a significant economical advantage when shipping freight over long distances. This is because trains consume less fuel and can carry loads more efficiently than trucks. In general, rail shipping is between 3-4 times more efficient than shipping by truck.

An intermodal approach (a combination of trucking and rail) often proves to be the most cost effective option for customers. This is especially true for those shipping long distances.

When you ship with Access America Transport, you’ll work with a single logistics coordinator to facilitate your move. These professionals are trained to leverage our vast network of contracted freight carriers in order to identify economical synergies within your supply chain.

Turn Key Optimization

If rail transportation makes sense for your company, Access America can safely handle every detail of the shipment. Our services function as a seamless extension of your current supply chain.

Our team will take care of mode optimization and route surveys while managing the entire project. This includes all loading/unloading of freight, safety inspections, rail clearances, trucking and communication with the railroad

When the move or project is complete, we deliver a consolidated invoice. Additionally, our logistics coordinator remains in close contact with you and are always available to answer any questions that arise along the way.
