Rail Cargo Consignment
Railway consignment includes railway express consignment and railway slow consignment. For passengers, railway express consignment is fast, and the luggage arrives when the person arrives. However, the cost of consignment is relatively high, and some urgently needed items that are not too heavy are suitable for railway express consignment. The slow shipment is a consignment method that transports the goods to the destination within a certain date through the reasonable grouping of the train according to the procedure of train cargo transportation. A prominent feature of slow shipping is that the price is relatively low, and the volume can be large, but the transportation time is difficult to grasp, and sometimes it takes a long time.
