Bulk Fuel & Keeping the Economy Moving

How Guttman Energy Helps the Rail and Trucking Industries Keep Moving with Bulk Fuel Programs

Bulk Fuel Delivery Truck

When you think of transportation, you might picture your family car or the local bus or subway. Your first thought probably isn’t a traditional train. While the rail industry isn’t the center of society as it once was, it is still a vital piece of our everyday lives. The rail and trucking industries are some of the biggest fuel consumers, and Guttman Energy is dedicated to supporting these industries through affordable and reliable fuel delivery.

The Importance of Railways

Think trains are a thing of the past? Think again. Railroads operate in 49 states and the District of Columbia, covering the vast majority of the United States. Rail customers can consume anywhere from 40,000 to 60,000 gallons of fuel daily. Railways won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. The Federal Highway Administration predicts that U.S. freight activity will rise to 28.7 billion tons per year by 2050.

Railways hold a special advantage over road transportation: trains can carry much larger items than what trucks can handle. Freight rail is a good option for transporting chemicals, coal, crude oil, motor vehicles and parts, and more. Even when carrying something as simple as food, trains can outdo traditional road transport. One railcar can hold enough flour for over 250,000 loaves of bread or enough corn to feed 37,000 chickens for their entire lives!

Not only are railroads effective at moving large crowds or cargo, but they are safer than other modes of transport. Since 2000, train accidents have decreased by a stunning 28%. On top of that, the past decade was the safest ever for the freight rail industry. By supporting safe methods of transportation, we can get people and products from Point A to Point B with less stress for everyone involved.
