Rail and Barge: the sustainable shipping method of the future! 

Are you looking to ship your cargo to or from a main port, but are you based much further in to continental Europe? 

If so, please consider multi-modal transport for the first or last leg of your trip! Both barge and rail transport are very cost effective, as well as environmentally sound modes of transport, for both short and especially for longer distances. Just tell us your destination, and we'll work out the best mode of transport for you! 

Sustainable shipping method

Do you regularly transport goods via the same routings? Are you interested in a sustainable shipping method? Railway transport might be just the thing for you. It offers many advantages compared to transport by road when it comes to sustainability. Think of, for example, the load per expedition, the number of productive kilometres and the emission of gasses.

Many advantages

Railway transport offers additional advantages as well. It is cost-efficient, reliable and safe. Compared to road transport, railway transport has longer processing times. On the other hand, it is not hindered by driving and resting times.

Normally it is the railway operator who is occupied with the tracks from train station to train station. When you book your shipment with Embassy Freight, we obviously arrange the transport from the starting address to the final destination.
