Rail freight the benefits of modal shift
Modal shift of freight from road to rail is good for the country. Rail presents a faster, greener, safer and more efficient way of transporting loads across Britain and is increasingly the mode of choice in a competitive freight market
Rail freight’s CO2 emissions are 76% less than road per tonne carried
On average a gallon of fuel will move a tonne of goods 246 miles on the railway, but only 88 miles by road.
