Rail transport to and from China

An alternative mode to air and sea freight

Every week we offer daily departures of  LCL and FCL shipments between China and the UK. We consolidate all LCL shipments at our own premises in China or the UK respectively, then further transport the containers to the rail terminals. There are two main routes for the freight trains with a number of sub-routes which are all linked via Germany.

Rail is flexible, reliable, economical, eco-friendly and fast, offering a transit time of around 22days from Rail in China to door UK.

With our own offices in Europe and China, we offer you total track solutions all the way from door to door, as well as document management and consolidation of both FCL and LCL containers.

When time is not of the essence, rail transport is your effective alternative to sea freight and at the same time is a cheaper solution than air freight.

Rail freight is not only an environmentally friendly solution, but also offers high degree of safety throughout the transit for your goods. We also offer the tailor-made transport solutions to fit customers’ needs through the ability to offer multimodal services.
