Transit times freight transport between Asia and Europe by rail 

We understand that fast delivery is the key to keeping your thriving business running. Because we work together with different carriers, we can guarantee that we choose the fastest and best option for you. We have this flexibility because of our independent position.

The construction of the New Silk Road, an initiative of the Chinese government to connect the continents of Africa, Asia and Europe by rail, plays a big role in international trading. It's the most environmental friendly option and ensures a major progression in rail cargo. 

From Asia, delivery times (port-to-port) is between 11-14 days before it arrives in Europe. The other way takes an average of 12-16 days, because eastbound routes are less common. Every month we check the transit times of the various carriers, so that we guarantee these transit times. In this way we are competitive compared to carriers. As a client you benefit from faster transit times and lower insurance fees. 

Custom freight transport solutions

In addition to transporting your goods by real from port-to-port, we can also take care of the entire process for you. By using intermodal transport, for example, we ensure that goods from countries such as Thailand or Vietman are first shipped with sea freight to China's mainland before carried by train. We can also ship goods from our central hub in the Netherlands to every city in the Netherlands or even Europe. That makes us a versatile logistics service provider.
