Rail transport is an alternative new solution within supply chain management; it addresses the environmental concerns of enterprises wishing to reduce carbon emissions. Rail transport departing from Asia to Europe is an attractive solution: faster than sea freight and less expensive than air freight. Goods can be transported through Eurasia routes, through China, then Russia or Kazakhstan to European lands like Hamburg, Duisburg, Warsaw or Spain from 15 to 20 days.
Pre-carriage of goods by rail, truck or barge.
One departure/week. Six logistics hubs in China and more in Europe. Booking from 7 to 10 days before departure. Minimum 1x40' or 2x20'.
Post-carriage of goods by rail, truck or barge.
CUSTOMS AND SAFETY
Goods are under active supervision, with containers sealed and tracked. Customs procedures are managed through integrated computer systems connected directly to the customs.
