Air, Rail, and Water Freight Transportation Services

Both consumer goods and products and everyday household goods can be moved across the U.S. and Canada via a variety of methods including by air carrier, over the road trucking, freight trains, and even barges.

  • Air freight transportation services are ideal for the transportation of lightweight materials or smaller packages. If the weight of the package is small, then air freight can even cost you a lot lesser than other freight options.
  • Rail freight transportation service is an eco-friendly option in comparison to some other freight transportation options, and this is an ideal solution for transporting heavy goods like machinery, equipment, or automobiles across states.
  • Freight transportation can also be completed through waterways, where the goods are transferred safely by ship or barge in freight containers. Water freight transportation services are ideal for long distance, international goods transfer and are usually preferred for transferring heavy goods or large shipments.
  • A final freight transportation method is long haul trucking where goods and equipment are transported in large trucks or on flatbed trailers. This method is the most commonly used transportation method for goods traveling across the country and to Canada.

Rail Freight Transportation: Request a Freight QuoteAmong the four types, air freight transportation services take the shortest time for transporting goods. Freight shipping through waterways is time consuming, and can take up to a few months depending on the length of the trip. This is often considered for shipping of heavy equipment like jets, helicopters, automobiles, or bulk material for companies. An advantage of water and sea freight transportation services is that these cost much less, when compared to air, rail, or trucking.
