If you have been following the news lately you have heard about the massive power outages in India. For over two days, most of the country has had either no power or unreliable power which drastically affects railway traffic in India. While India may not be where your shipment is going, the problems they are having point out the interdependence rail freight has with various other parts of infrastructure. Without power, rail switches don’t work, communications systems fail and for most industries and particularly the railway industry, a day without power is a plain bad day. India, which relies heavily on electric trains for passenger transport has seen their freight traffic drop to near nothing because diesel engines normally used to transport freight have been put into service on passenger lines.
While it’s hard to predict something like widespread power outages, Freight Management Logistics staff keep a pulse on the freight industry as a whole to insure that we can best advise our clients on how to transport their cargo. This helps us put backup plans into action should any part of your supply chain run into unforeseen trouble.
