Which transportation means is best to export goods from China?

There are several ways in which you can export your products from China. The most common mode of transport is with air freight. Your products will be at their destination within a few days and this method of transport is literally limitless. The disadvantage? Air freight is a significant investment for your wallet. And it is also extremely polluting for the environment.

A cheaper and more environmental friendly alternative is sea freight. Although you do need a lot of patience for this: it often takes longer than a month before your goods arrive in Europe from China. Just before the start of a busy season, exporting your stuff from China by ship or quickly responding to a certain trend is not an option with sea freight. The corona measures that closed several ports and the problems of the Suez Canal in the spring of 2021 have exposed the vulnerabilities of sea freight.

It seems as if you have to choose between two evils: relatively expensive and polluting for the environment or cheaper, more vulnerable and long transit times. But fortunately there is a third way which combines the advantages: exporting goods by train.
