China Rail Freight across Europe

Over the last few years, China Railway has been transporting freight and cargo via the famous Silk Road railway track which links 12,000 kilometres of track via the Trans Siberian Railway

Trains arriving from Yiwu to London (Barking in East London) are now weekly.

This new service for importers provides an opportunity to receive rail freight from China, which in turn allows for faster delivery at a lower cost.

The new service means a potential saving on importing from China by air freight, with a potential saving of 50%. In relation to importing by sea freight from China, it means a time saving of anywhere between 12-14 days

Apart from London here are some other European Routes/Schedules

There are two key rail links/routes: The first goes due north from China and connects with the famous Russian Trans-Siberian or heading west across Kazakhstan before feeding into the Trans-Siberian at Yekaterinburg, a key junction for rail freight movements going in a westerly direction, and providing a key freight and project cargo transport link into Europe.

China – Warsaw (Poland) 12 days
China – Hamburg (Germany) 15 days
China – London (United Kingdom) 16-18 days
China – Moscow (Russia) 18 days

You will find this new service in the shipment booking section of your dashboard.
