Land bridge (rail)
A rail land bridge refers to the transport of containers by rail between ports on either side of a land mass, such as North America. Hofstra University defines a rail land bridge as having two characteristics: First, there is a single bill of lading issued by the freight forwarder that covers the entire journey, and second, the freight remains in the same container for the total transit. One example of a rail land bridge is the Eurasian Land Bridge. A transcontinental railroad can be a type of land bridge.
