Rail transport

For efficient, reliable and fast transport of FCL and LCL container cargo from countries such as China, we have been offering a price competitive alternative by rail since 2016. This alternative is faster than sea freight and cheaper than air freight.

Almost every day trains with containers leave for Europe. From the train station in Chengdu it takes only 14 days to get your cargo in the Netherlands.

Thanks to the faster transit time, this provides an advantage in your supply chain with fewer products in your chain. For electronics, fashion and other high-tech goods for example, this is a good alternative solution.

The terminals and containers meet all the safety requirements and the anti-theft measures ensure that the contents of your containers are optimally protected.

Rail transport also offers benefits in terms of CO2 emissions compared to other modalities. The Chinese government has decided to invest more than 40 billion euros in the coming years, so this is also a modality to take into account for the long term.
