C.H. Robinson launches trans-Eurasian rail service

C.H. Robinson has launched a trans-Eurasian rail freight service between China and Europe.

The new service connects eight origin terminals in China with eight destination cities in Europe.

Each freight train requires 18-20 days to complete the tour between terminals in Zhengzhou, Zushou, Wuhan, Yiwu, Xiamen, Shenzen, Guangzhou and Chongqing 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 C.H. Robinson.

With the new routes, customers also have more sustainable service and wider coverage. C.H. Robinson 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.

Ivo Aris, vice president, C.H. Robinson Europe Global Forwarding, added: “Until recently, a large percentage of container shipments from China to Europe were delivered by sea. By adding this service to our portfolio, we won’t compete with ocean shipping or air freight, but rather further complement the breadth of services we already offer to our customers.”
