Rail-Road Transport

GEODIS is a leading operator in combined rail-road transport. Our solutions target economic, operational, and environmental performance through high-volume shipments, continuous operation, and a reduction in accident risk and CO2 emissions. This type of multimodal transportation offers numerous benefits in terms of productivity and reliability. Because it is not always possible to use rail transport for the complete journey, we combine several means of transport and handle the pick-up and final delivery runs for you.

Minimal carbon footprint

Our railway expertise helps us generate up to 11 times less CO2 than road transportation. We have first access to busy railway lines in China, across other Asian countries and throughout Europe. We are also committed to taking a proactive approach in understanding and meeting your specific needs in this area. As a result, you will receive reliable service with optimized flows while staying within your budgetary constraints.

Cost-effective and time-efficient

Our rail-road solutions provide shorter transit times than ocean freight and lower costs than airfreight. It is therefore perfect for companies who transport goods with short life cycles (not compatible with ocean freight), but without the large profit margins that justify air shipments. What’s more, rail shipments can often be handled faster due to the fact that customs clearance takes place during the journey, eliminating waiting time at border crossings.
