As a result of the vast distances between the major sales markets (Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban and Port Elizabeth), there is a total rail network of ± 7000 km available to service all the major cities in South Africa and are currently utilising rail transport on the routes Durban to Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth to Johannesburg extensively. The two tier train is ideal to handle large volumes. The rail trucks are totally enclosed to protect the vehicle against damages.
The rail also caters for certain hi-profile vehicles by utilizing enclosed rail trucks which are compatible with the two tier train.
As the rail does not provide for door-to-door deliveries, Motorvia utilizes various carrying capacity carriers to accomodate the door-to-door demand.
