Ceva takes to the rails to keep cargo on the move

[ February 10, 2022   //   ]

CEVA Logistics has launched a number of multimodal cross-border services in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
It is using its own mega-box trailers and 45 high cube pallet wide (HCPW) containers for a daily, direct rail connection from Istanbul’s Halkali rail terminal to Duisburg, offering a transit time of six days.
It also recently launched a block train rail service between Vietnam and Europe via China.
In addition to the block train, Ceva can handle container consolidation and trucking services to the Vietnam rail terminal and manage customs clearance at both ends and in transit.
The logistics operator is also offering a new multi-modal truck-rail-truck solution to alleviate border congestion between China and many Southeast Asian countries. The new has door-to-door lead times of 4 to 8 days, picking up through the Ceva trucking network in China and then using its own block trains between Pinxiang, Nanning, Kunming, Xiamen and Chongqing in China through Vietnam or Laos into Thailand, where the Ceva trucking deliver shipments to final destinations, including Malaysia and Singapore.
