Silkroad transport

The ‘New Silk Road’, ‘Belt and Road Initiative’ and ‘One Belt, One Road’. Different names for the same strategy: an initiative from the Chinese government to increase the collaboration and connections between countries in Africa, Europe en Asia. In the Middle Ages the Silk road was a network of routes between the Middle-East, which connected Asia with the Mediterranean Sea for trade goals. Years later the Chinese government invested a lot of money in these routes to make it easier to ship goods between the different continents. 
 
Silkroad transport between Asia and Europe is the most logical choise in a world where we need to reduce C02 emissions. Rail cargo has, compared to air freight, a 27x less C02 emission per Tonne/km.

What is the goal of New Silk Road?

The New Silk Road connects continents through the road-, rail- and sea network. In this way goods can easily get shipped between Europe, the north of Africa and Asia. Silkroad transports make sure goods from and to Asia can easily be transported to other continents.
