Market Spotlight: Biodiesel

Released February 22, 2017


Biodiesel ships to destinations throughout North America. In fact, you’ve probably seen the tank trucks traversing the interstates. But trucks aren’t the only way to move biodiesel — rail is a viable option, too. Through transloading, biodiesel moves seamlessly between trucks and trains, so it can ship by affordable rail for the long haul, then truck for final delivery.

UPDS has an extensive network of liquid bulk transload facilities outfitted with pressurized pumps to safely transfer biodiesel from train to truck and make rail accessible for biodiesel shippers.

Moving biodiesel by rail doesn’t mean additional hassle. UPDS bundles rail, transloading and truck delivery into a single invoice. Our experts tailor solutions to your needs and coordinate with all parties involved — so it’s simple and easy to use rail.
