Abstract
Logistics is inseparable with transportation because it aims to support the logistics activities. Truck transport still becomes the main choice in supporting logistics activities though it is expensive and risky. Besides truck, railway transportation is a solution for logistics that can provide a rail based on freight train services which is cheap and quick. The lightweight of actual operation process that is suitable for shipping is less than 350 KM. On the other hand, rail transport is an efficient transportation for delivery of goods more than 350 KM. The purpose of this research is to investigate the optimization of railway transport modes to reduce cost and support logistics activities to be more efficient in Indonesia.
