This paper analyzes the economic effect of railway piggyback transportation in China, comparing the cost be-tween railway piggyback transportation and that of highway transportation. After calculating the cost of sta-tion to station railway piggyback transportation and that of highway freight transportation (taking Deppon lo-gistics as an example) and comparing these two with the cost of logistics market in Beijing, it indicates that if the transportation price adopts 40 foot container of railway as station to station railway piggyback transporta-tion, the transferring cost for per ton kilometer of packed computers and heavy goods are much economical than that of Deppon's and slightly lower than that of logistics market in Beijing for highway transportation. Therefore, introducing railway piggyback transportation in China is entirely feasible under a reasonable cost strategy.
