Rail transport is generally faster. Rail Freight can reach hundreds of kilometers per day, and the speed is much higher than that of sea transportation. The transportation volume is relatively large. A freight train on the railway can generally transport 3,000 to 5000 tons of freight, and these loads are much higher than air transportation and automobile transportation. The cost of railway transportation is relatively low, and the fuel consumption for transportation is about one-twentieth of that of automobile transportation.
The transportation risks of railways are relatively reliable. Generally speaking, the risks are less than those of maritime transportation. Rail Freight generally needs to lay tracks, build bridges and tunnels, so road construction projects are relatively difficult and complicated, requiring a large amount of steel And timber, these artificial constructions help to protect the risk of railway freight from being much reduced.
