DB Schenker will launch another China-to-Germany rail service


Germany's DB Schenker will launch another China-to-Germany rail service on August 14 for shippers seeking faster delivery times to Europe on an experimental basis, according to the Shipping Gazette.
The company already operates a weekly service from Chongqing to Duisburg and from Leipzig to Shenyang for electronics and automotive customers.
"Most containers [on the new service] are from local forwarders, but, as the only international freight forwarder, DB Schenker provides around 25 per cent of the volume," said the company's rail chief Bernhard Wiezorek.
The company is also examining the launch of additional services linking Asia to Europe and Central Asia, as well as backhaul operations which have yet to be explored.
"Currently, the Zhengzhou-Hamburg route is a one-way-connection. However, we have several large customers that have already expressed their strong interest in using this route for return shipments," he said.
The pilot service will operate from the rapidly expanding inland China manufacturing hub of Zhengzhou through to Hamburg, Germany, and will offer 51 container slots per trip. The plan is to build the route into a weekly block train operation by the end of the year.
Zhengzhou International Land Port Development is the initiator and main organiser of the test run, with DB Schenker operating the train once it leaves China and providing logistics support and on-carriage of boxes by truck in Europe.
