Maximize Density, Improve Safety and Load in Minutes

Green Swan’s solution is a game-changer for domestic freight transport as it substantially increases freight-loading speeds, improves cargo security, and accommodates commodities of various types, sizes, and shapes.

Our rapid-loading freight transportation system makes rail more convenient for current rail users and offers a viable rail alternative for shippers who traditionally use long-haul trucking.

At the core of Green Swan’s system is an open-top, solid-wall railcar that pairs with high-capacity cargo racks, called SecureRacks.

The size and flexibility of the SecureRack’s modular design allows shippers to maximize the cubic density of each shipment. A Green Swan railcar contains two SecureRack frames that each measure about 28 feet long, 9 feet wide, and 18 feet high, hold up to 75,000 pounds, and include height-adjustable, removable decks. 

The SecureRack's multiple floor design is especially advantageous for goods that can’t be stacked as it increases products-per-cubic-foot that are transported on the tracks.

At your facility, cargo is loaded into the SecureRacks without the railcar present. When the Green Swan railcar arrives, your preloaded SecureRacks are top loaded in minutes. By using readily available lifting equipment like mobile cranes or container reach stackers, employees do not have to interact with the railcar directly.

The hood of each SecureRack forms a weather-tight seal to become the roof of the railcar and to create an inaccessible cargo bay. There are no doors on the outer walls of the railcar and all Green Swan railcars are tracked so you always know the location and condition of your shipment. You can integrate your current RFID tracking data into your delivery, adding another layer of security.

Once the Green Swan railcar arrives at its destination, the roof seal is released and the cargo-filled SecureRacks are removed from the railcar in minutes. The cargo is available for offloading at your convenience while the train consist is free to resume its trip without the usual hours-long unloading process.

Green Swan removes traditional barriers to shipping by rail by providing the loading speed of intermodal and trucking with the expanded capacity of box cars. This saves time and money for companies looking for a greener, long-haul transportation system.

Green Swan integrates with current logistics systems and existing rail infrastructure to streamline operations


Green Swan will install and train your team on our top-loading system on your premises.

Load cargo onto Green Swan multi-commodity Secure Racks without a railcar on site.

Challenges with Traditional Freight Transportation

Stacks of coins

Surging fuel and labor costs for traditional transportation are increasing consumer pricing and squeezing profits

The Green Swan Solution reduces shipping costs and increases speed of loading freight. We make it viable for companies who typically need to rely on trucking to ship by rail for the longest domestic middle mile. 

CO2 Cloud

Most solutions to decarbonize the supply chain are too disruptive and expensive to be viable

Governments, companies and climate-change advocates agree CO2 emissions need to be reduced. Green Swan's system leverages existing infrastructure and available technologies to provide an eco-friendly way to transport cargo long distances.

Half full truck

Congestion in the supply chain and shipping air are costing companies and consumers 

​On average, only 75% of a truck’s available volume and weight limits are being utilized due to either the inability to stack cargo (e.g., too fragile) or axle weight restrictions. Containers go full from inland ports, but mostly return to the port empty. Green Swan addresses this by maximizing density and eliminating empty returns.

Green Swan offers a meaningful win for all stakeholders

Companies that ship goods will make onsite shipping operations more efficient and cost effective and add safety and security for employees and cargo.

Governments will lessen wear on public roads and infrastructure and reduce carbon emissions by converting more trucks to rail.

The environment will have less carbon emissions emitted which will assist all stakeholders to reach their environmental commitments.

Railroads can expand traffic to their networks without increasing capacity by using Green Swan freight cars that are packed more densely.

Trucking companies can focus on the first and last miles avoiding costly and CO2-emitting long-haul trips and avoiding driver fatigue. 

Consumers' purchases will be transported in the most efficient and eco-friendly way.
