One of the many value-added services Commtrex provides is how to best optimize your freight shipping route. A common question we receive is: How much does it cost to ship by rail between Chicago and Birmingham? To calculate freight shipping rates, we need to know the mode of transportation (rail, barge, etc.), the type of cargo (containerized, dry/liquid bulk, etc.), the weight and volume, distance the cargo is traveling (in this case 575 miles or 925 km between Birmingham and Chicago), and a variety of other data points. Once we have received this information, Commtrex will work closely with various logistics service providers to expedite the procurement of freight shipping costs.
Commtrex works closely with our Class I Railroads and several hundred Short Line Railroad partners to provide freight shipping quotes between Chicago and Birmingham.
