Rail cargo

Your business gets goods from or to Asia or Europe. This means facing logistic challenges. For example searching the right solutions to get your product at the right place, time and in the right state to its destination.
 
Importing or exporting goods isn't always peanuts. The process doesn't only contain finding the right transportation vehicle, but also finding the right distributors. What is the delivery time? What does customs clearance mean for my situation? These are some of the questions you will face as a transporter or trader of goods between continents.  Transporting cargo by rail between Asia and Europe is something we do on a daily basis and we would like to tell you more on this page about rail cargo and what it means for your logistic process. 

What are the benefits of rail cargo?

Rail cargo is two times faster compared to Seafreight and on average 65% cheaper than Air cargo. Besides this, rail cargo has a lower CO2 emission than air cargo (27 times less).  But these are not the only benefits you will face:

  • Rail cargo is two times faster than seafreight
  • On average 65% cheapier than aircargo
  • 27x times lower CO2-emission than airfreight (p/tonne km)
  • Stable delivery times and mutiple departures each week
  • Fast transittimes

What are the differences between rail cargo compared to air and sea cargo?

Your cargo is ready for transportation. From Asia to Europe or the other way around. Air freight has a high price tag: it is on average 65% more expensive than rail cargo. We didn't even speak about the environmental issues: the emission of transporting your cargo by air is 27 times higher than by train.
 
Another option is transporting the products by sea freight. It is cheaper but it takes a lot longer to arrive at its destination: approximately 36-40 days. Sea freight also harms the wellbeing of the ocean and the insurance values are a lot higher when shipping cargo by boat. In an 24/7 economy, customers don't want to wait this long for their shipments. Rail cargo brings the benefits of air and sea freight together in one package and makes it the best solution to transport your goods by rail.
