Why is it better to choose railway transportation

Any goods can be sent by train, even perishable and dangerous cargos. For this type of transport, there are practically no restrictions on the number of containers or tanks transported. Many clients of our transport company confidently choose railway shipment for three reasons:
Safety: the probability of damage to containers during loading and transportation is minimal. But for such cases, there is a cargo insurance service.
Capacity and tonnage: the volume and weight of products, which can be carried off by rail transport, are not available for road transport.
All-weather conditions: the operation of the railway does not depend on weather conditions. Trains leave at any time of the year without deviations in the timetable.

Possible restrictions on the carriage of goods by railway

Railway transportation is ideal for shipment within a continent. The service does not imply restrictions on the weight and quantity of products, therefore it is especially advantageous to transport bulk quantities of goods by sea containers in this way.

When organizing railway delivery, it is necessary to take into account one feature: not all residential areas of European countries, China have these routes. In this case, we recommend ordering multimodal transportation, combining railway wagons transportation with road transportation.

What documents are needed to order a service

Import and export of goods in any direction occurs on the basis of documentary confirmation of the characteristics and origin of the cargo, the technical condition of the transport and the route. Documents for the employees of the transport company and the railway train are drawn up by our specialists.
Before sending the cargo, it is also necessary to settle issues with insurance, customs and other authorities. As part of the selected transport service, our managers prepare documents and permits, negotiate with various institutions to agree on any organizational issues. In addition to standard package of documents, you need to get:

Euro-1 Export certificate and Carnet TIR;
Bill of lading, invoice, Consignment note of international standard;

Our managers will calculate the cost of delivery, develop the best route and help prepare all the documents for the quick shipment of the cargo to the destination.
