What are unit train operations?

Unit train operations refer to a specific type of rail transportation where an entire train is dedicated to a single commodity or cargo type. In unit train operations, all railcars in the train are loaded with the same product and destined for the same location. This approach eliminates the need for sorting or marshaling individual railcars at intermediate points along the route, as the entire train travels from the origin to the destination without any stops to add or remove cars.
