Cargo transport can be done in different ways. Often the first thing that comes to mind is transport by plane. However, more and more organizations are sharpening their sustainability goals and therefore cargo transport by air is not the most environmental friendly way. Freight transport by air is fast, but it has a major impact on the quality of life of our planet and your wallet.
Another way of transporting cargo from Asia is by sea freight. The advantage of this means is that the carbon emissions are lower compared to aviation, but at the same time it is also a lot slower. Due to the pandemic, sea freight has also lost its competitive position. Due to the closure of several ports and the shortage of containers, container prices have risen enormously and shipping companies are no longer able to meet demand. This results into higher costs, delays of your cargo and a higher insured value. Because every extra delayed day means a higher insured value. It seems as if you have to choose between two evils: fast, but polluting or slow, relatively expensive but a lot better for the environment.
Fortunately, there is another option: cargo transport by train. It may not be the first mode of transport that comes to mind. But due to the construction of the New Silk Road, a rail network with the aim of connecting the continents of Asia, Europe and North Africa, freight transport by train has suddenly become a lot more interesting.
Due to the efficient routes, cargo transport from Europe to Asia takes on average 11 to 14 days. That is twice faster compared to sea freight. In addition, it emits 27 times less carbon compared to air freight.
