In the beginning, the Garners focused on food distribution networks. This highly specialized sector has traditionally been serviced by long-haul truck transport. This means that nearly all of our food’s ecological footprints could be decreased. This can happen in more than one way.
A key feature that helps to keep costs low is fuel efficiency. One locomotive can haul between 60-70 railcars or 200-300 containers. These can be a combination of intermodal containers and boxcars.
Containers can share the same foot print as the load of a 53’ truck yet will emit only a fraction of the emissions. Boxcars carry three to four times more volume than a regular 53’ truck with weight maximums of up to 180,000lbs. If your product can weigh out before it cubes out there is a lot of potential in the boxcar solution!
Each solution has it’s merits Intermodal rail accessibility drives it’s transit times down. Boxcar solutions work best with warehousing facilities that are equipped with rail spurs or are close to warehouses that offer transloading services. Garner Enterprises put all these pieces of the puzzle together and find the best solution for you and your needs.
