Tiger Rail linking new Silk Road destinations

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

Tigers has launched a new rail freight service, called Tiger Rail, which offers a 16-day transit time between Germany and China.

The service will run both east and westbound, between Duisburg in Germany, and Hefei, Chongqing, and Chengdu in China.

Tiger Rail customers can charter a train, or book Full Container Load (FCL) or Less than Container Load (LCL) shipments on weekly scheduled services to and from over 15 origin stations in China.

In a statement sent to Post&Parcel today (12 September), the Hong Kong-headquartered supply chain specialist said it is also planning to offer e-commerce customers shipping parcels from Europe to China a cost-effective service along the new Silk Road.

“We have seized the opportunity to provide integrated logistics for our customers, who increasingly require shorter transit times than ocean freight, and lower costs than airfreight, making Tiger Rail the perfect solution,” said Paul Huang, Managing Director, Tigers China.

“Our customers benefit from lower shipping costs by empty container return in Switzerland for westbound services, and Shipper’s Own Container (SOC) for eastbound services, for both FCL and LCL.

“Tigers has already supported customers to transport over 500 TEUs as FCL, and 1500 cubic meters (CBMs) as LCL along the new Silk Road.”

Andrew Jillings, Chief Executive Officer and Group Managing Director, Tigers, added: “We are currently preparing test shipments for European Union (EU) Business to Consumer (B2C) parcels importing to China with Tiger Rail, and look forward to expanding our rail freight capabilities even further.”

Tiger Rail customers can track and trace their freight shipments using the Tiger Trax platform.
