With the uncertainty surrounding the cost of fuel in today’s economy, now more than ever, rail can offer significant savings over shipment by truck. Interstate Cold Storage rail spurs can handle both standard 50-ft rail cars and newer “Super Cars” that can handle loads up to 165,000 lbs. of product, which is the equivalent to 4 truckloads.
Interstate Cold Storage customer service representatives work closely with CSX Corporation and local freight yards, so we can manage the coordination of product, loading/unloading and scheduling of your rail shipments. Most modern refrigerated cars are monitored via satellite for temperature accuracy, low fuel and general maintenance; allowing you rest assured your product is safe.
Shipping by rail may not only be a great economical decision, but also contributes to lessening the burden on our already crowded US interstate system.
