Rail transport

Rail transport was formerly used to transport luxury products as silk and spices. Over the years rail transport disappeared into the background. The many coupling and disconnection of wagons and the poor infrastructure were main reasons. Over the last years, countries as China invested in the railway network to stimulate trade. It was a great stimulation, and the railways are becoming more popular again. Especially when airlines or shipping lines are struggling with capacity problems, a container by rail can offer your business a solution.

Fast turnaround
Are you looking for a solution for your products that need to go to or from China? But cannot you get capacity through sea freight or air freight? Rail transport has a sensibly short transit time. It is almost twice as fast as sea freight. So you can have your products (as electronics, clothing, trend-sensitive products) or raw materials from Asia within 15 to 20 days in Europe. With subsequent deliveries throughout Europe, Middle East or Africa.
Total package
Not all companies know how to fit rail freight into their current transport system. In order to discharge these concerns, you can expect a total package for rail transport. You will get support in the whole process including all customs procedures. For example advice and documentation, regular updates, your products delivered home and competitive rates.
Environmentally friendly
Rail transport includes large steam locomotives burning tons of coal, right? Think again! Especially when it comes to intercontinental transport, rail is among the most sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions. Compare rail transport to sea freight or air freight and you will see it is more environmentally. Additionally, freight trains run according to a timetable.
