How does transloading help shippers reach a market that may not be served directly by a particular transportation mode? (RCR Rail Co.)

Transloading gives companies the distinctive advantages of a large carrying capacity combined with lower costs. The lower fixed cost comes from the ability to ship by rail without having to build a track to your facility. Your product covers much of the shipping distance by rail, and your company only pays the more expensive truck transport costs for the last few miles. This also allows your company to scale while maintaining lower logistics costs. One rail car has the capacity to hold 3-4 truckloads of material. Thus, the more material you load into the railcar, the more money your company is saving.
