Sustainable transport from East to West

In recent years, the train routes from Europe to China (and vice versa) have been developed extensively. Rail transport offers economic opportunities for your shipments to and from China, as well as most central stations in Europe. This type of transport is seen as the ultimate compromise, as the transit time is shorter than that of sea freight and the cost is lower than that of air freight. It is also by far the most sustainable mode of transportation, making it suitable for companies that do business in an environmentally responsible manner.

The future is on rails

Besides the obvious ‘green choice,’ the introduction of container trains has significantly reduced the time for loading and unloading cargo. This, and the fact that trains are a very reliable mode of transport, shows that the popularity of rail transport is growing rapidly. It is a good option for general cargo shipments such as spare and consumer goods or even bulk goods. You have the option of booking a full container or just part of the load.
