CH Robinson starts new rail service connecting China and Europe


Major third-party logistics providers (3PL) CH Robinson has announced the launch of a new trans-Eurasian rail freight service that connects nine origin terminals in China with eight destination cities in Europe, according to Shipping Gazette.
Each freight train requires 18-20 days to complete the tour between terminals in Zhengzhou, Suzhou, Chongqing, Chengdu, Wuhan, Yiwu, Xiamen, Shenzhen and Guangzhou in China, with the cities of Melaszewicze, Hamburg, Duisburg, Milan, Tilburg, Lyon and Paris in Europe, and Barking in the UK.
"The new rail line complements our air and ocean offerings, giving customers the ultimate in flexibility. It is for freight that requires faster transit times than ocean, at twice the speed, with substantial savings over air," said Mike Short, president, Global Forwarding at CH Robinson.
He explained that the new service is a convenient direct link to and from China's booming economic cities to multiple countries and destinations in Europe. "CH Robinson's strategic development of gateways in China gives customers more choice, along with exceptional service and competitive pricing."
With the new routes, customers also have more sustainable service and wider coverage. The company offers empty container pick up, collection at factories, customs declaration at origin, customs clearance and further pan-European distribution by intermodal and truck services at destination areas. Full block train, single or multiple containers, LCL shipments and oversized cargo are available options.
Said CH Robinson vice president John Chen: "With trans-Eurasian rail service adding to our current ocean and air offerings, our customers could have more route choices and wider coverage from China to Europe. One Belt One Road is a top initiative for China. We are glad to support this with our customers."
