Shipping your Railcar Shells with Ease and Accuracy

Rail transportation has been around for over two centuries and it continues to be a key player in the transportation industry. With a rich history and remarkable legacy, the rail sector is constantly growing and evolving to meet modern needs. The future of rail is arriving quickly, and Sumisho Global Logistics is acutely familiar with transporting the passenger railcar shells that are a key part of this economic progress. With extensive experience in logistics and shipping for passenger trains, Sumisho Global Logistics has been entrusted with the task of delivering over 1000 passenger rail car shells from Japan to the U.S manufacturing facilities for final assembly. Our unparalleled expertise in rail shipping and logistics, and our knowledge of rail infrastructure has helped us become a trusted partner for various organizations looking to transport high value cargo efficiently and safely.

Unparalleled Expertise in Logistics and Shipping Solutions for Trains

The process of delivering railcar shells from Japan to U.S. manufacturing facilities for final assembly is an intricate and important task that requires extensive planning and coordination between various parties. Sumisho Global Logistics, a company with vast experience in logistics and shipping, is one of the key players in this process. To transport over 1000 passenger rail car shells from Japan to the US, SGL employs various transportation modes, including ocean vessels and railway cars, to ensure the train shells arrive at their destination safely and efficiently.

SGL’s expertise in shipping and handling high value cargo such as high speed trains and passenger rail cars comes into play in the planning process. We conduct thorough risk assessments and route planning strategies to ensure the cargo is transported safely through feasible transportation modes. One factor that makes the transportation of railcar shells particularly challenging is their size and weight. The train shells are typically over 50 feet long and weigh up to 80,000 pounds, making them a difficult load to transport. However, SGL’s considerable experience in logistics enables us to overcome these challenges and deliver the rail car shells seamlessly from origin to destination.

Once the rail shells are loaded, SGL supervises and monitors them throughout their journey, ensuring they are transported according to the strict delivery schedule. SGL’s network of partners and collaborators extends to manufacturing facilities and suppliers worldwide, ensuring the railcar shells are delivered to their final destination safely and without delay.
