What is Double Stack Train (DST)?
A Double Stack Train (DST) is a type of freight train that can carry two layers of shipping containers stacked on top of each other. The use of double-stacked trains has become increasingly popular in recent years due to their efficiency and cost-effectiveness. By stacking containers vertically, trains can transport more cargo in a single trip, which reduces transportation costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
