With direct transportation links from the deep sea ports of Felixstowe, Southampton and London Gateway to all major cities, rail provides an alternative method of transportation for maritime containers, avoiding congested roads.As such, it’s little wonder that freight carries more than £30bn of goods around Britain each year.
With connections to a network of leading rail freight operating companies, we can arrange to move your imported containers from the port of arrival, or containers for export to the port of departure, with elements of the journey being supported by transport via road vehicles.
Time and cost are becoming increasingly crucial factors across industries including automotive, technology, food and fashion. As a faster alternative to road or sea, we can arrange rail freight transportation for your consignments, throughout Europe, and beyond.With more high-end manufacturing now taking place in China, demand for quicker delivery solutions to the West are on the rise. A demand for luxury, high end goods, and perishables from Europe amongst the Chinese population is in turn driving demand for supply chain solutions the other way, from West to East.
To capitalise on these changing trends, demand for Eurasian rail services has begun to increase.Whilst sea freight remains cheaper than rail freight,
transit times are double. Most trains now take less than 2 weeks each way; Chongqing to Duisburg freight services via rail enables deliveries into Europe
in 12 -13 days. In comparison, the transport of goods via sea take 5 weeks. Rail still remains a slower option in to air, but is half the cost.
Rail freight operators have also introduced LCL services on many routes now, creating an opening for those without full container consignments to take advantage of this emerging transportation route.
