By Rail

If you are shipping products over 700 miles of land, rail shipping is your best bet. Besides being extremely cost effective, a single carload can carry up to 200 tons of freight, the equivalent of three trucks. Products that can be easily stacked, such as paper, are ideal for rail shipping. The one caveat? The process can take awhile. A cross-country trip on rail can take about five to seven days.
