Maximizing profitability in today's hyper-competitive marketplace is a constant challenge. Transportation costs can severely erode your bottom line, especially if shipping over long distances. J&A Freight Systems' clients are able to mitigate these costs by taking advantage of our extensive rail services. Over the last three decades J&A has developed relationships with rail providers and steamship lines to give our customers access to thousands of 20', 40', 45' and 53' containers facilitating cost effective rail service throughout North America. These partnerships save our customers 30% on most lanes and more than 40% on select long-haul lanes when compared with over-the-road options. For time sensitive shipments, J&A offers premium rail service with transit times comparable to over-the-road service in select lanes.
