Keeping your consignment on track

Rail freight is a great alternative to road, air or ocean transport, with benefits that keep on coming.

It provides a fast and direct overland service and EV Cargo offers a range of services to meet your requirements. These include door-to-door solutions, cross-docking and customs clearance, transport insurance, special safety and monitoring devices, and less-than-full-load consignments.

And as rail containers and trailers are compatible with road freight there is no need to unload and load at transit points – saving time and further reducing costs.
