Moving container freight by rail instead of truck lowers greenhouse gas emissions by 75 % Since its fi rst intermodal design in 1984, Greenbrier has continually innovated railcar design, leading the railroad industry toward substantial fi nancial and environmental savings. In January 2017, Greenbrier will build its 100,000th intermodal double stack railcar for the North American fl eet. Shifting just 10% of truck freight to rail would yield each year: Greenbrier's 100,000 intermodal double-stack railcars save truck miles each year... 800 million gallons of fuel saved 9 million-ton reduction in greenhouse gases Equal to 1.8 million cars taken off the road ...roughly 83 trips to the sun and back!
