Hey everyone, just like the title says, I'm looking for reading material on how to transport materials by train. Books, articles, legalese, contractors, that sort of thing.

Thou bootless clapper-clawed varlot!


Two relevant questions:

1. What kind of materials? Lumber? Faberge eggs? Depleted uranium?

2. How much/many? A duffel bag's worth? A train car's worth?

So you're looking to transport some quantity of assorted documents and paper by train? Why by train. specifically? My general and rather uninformed feeling is that dealing with the actual logistics of how a thing is shipped is a rather pointless task unless you have a container of something to ship, or at least a significant fraction thereof. I can't imagine an actual railroad company would be willing to give you the time of day unless you're actually shipping a full container of whatever you're shipping, and even then I have my doubts.

Believe.

Here is a book that will help you out: http://www.amazon.com/Freight-Train...s=train+freight

Call a freight forwarder and ask them. They can get better rates than you and it's their job to deal with all that stuff.
