If your or your destination's industrial facility is not directly served by rail, there are still options of transloading from rail to truck and vice versa. Transloading from rail to truck allows a shipper to use rail for the long-haul and truck for the short-haul. Depending on how much and how far away the freight needs to be moved, the transportation costs can be dramatically less than using truck-direct for the shipment. Since rail is more efficient over long distances, freight rates are typically significantly lower.
Rail to Road Transloading is located on the northeast side of Sioux Falls, and provides convenient and effecient transloading for the entire region. Rail to Road specializes in the transload of various bulk products such as fly ash, cement, lime, and catalyst, as well as lumber, steel, aggregates, palleted materials, liquids, and other commodities.
