Price. In terms of long-distance routes, rail transport will always be more cost-effective than air transportation and overseas cargo transportation. They can be even cheaper than trucking. There is the direct dependence of the price on the distance of the point of destination and the quantity of cargo.

Speed. Trains do not get stuck in traffic; they hardly ever break down and move at high speed at any time of the day. They are less dependent on weather conditions and other problems. Transportation by rail far less frequently leads to delays with all the attendant consequences.

Safety. Transportation by rail in Ukraine and other countries guarantees almost 100% cargo safety. During such transportation, the probability of damage due to a bad road, emergency situations and other force majeure circumstances is minimal. Furthermore, we use a special system for monitoring the cargo safety. Many cargoes are transported in safe containers.

Versatility. There are many types of cars. They enable almost all types of cargo to be transported. Rail transport will be the best option among all possible types of transport to carry some oversized cargo. With the use of special platforms, it is possible to transport oversized cargo, which is physically impossible to transport by road.

The facts described above indicate that rail transportation is the optimal type of inexpensive and safe delivery. They are very convenient for enterprises in industrial cities, since they enable shipping goods or products in short terms and in almost any amount. Recently, representatives of small and medium-sized businesses have been increasingly using the transportation of their products by rail in Ukraine and abroad. The comparatively low price makes this type of transportation very convenient for companies with low logistics budget. And in times of crisis, rail transportation is becoming a very convenient way to save money. Though in some areas the delivery by road will be faster, but the rail cars are anyway safer and cheaper.
