Often loads that are oversized by road transport are considered to be gauge in rail transport, which is an opportunity to transport oversize cargo at lower costs.

Rare who knows that rail transport is one of the cheapest means of transport for long-distance cargo transportation. Transportation costs are down to 30% compared to road transport.

These costs are lower when transporting goods by rail because:

  • Volumetric capacity of wagons is even up to 2-3 times higher than the tractor;
  • A wagon with a capacity of 120 m3 to 250 m3 can choose between the most customer's needs;
  • On the long haul, transporting loads of particularly heavy and large volume of vehicles, the railway is the optimal and safest solution.
