Cheaper than a plane, faster than a train

[ November 28, 2018   //   ]

Ceva Logistics has taken part in the project to send the first ever TIR truck from China to Europe. A trial run from Khorgos, China via Kazakhstan to Poland operated on 13 November, in conjunction with the International Road Transportation Union and Alblas and Jet-rail, arriving at destination in just 11 days for the 7,000km run. There was no disruption or Customs issues, the partners reported. TIR became active for the People’s Republic of China in May 2018.

The new service will save about 50% over airfreight will be 30-50% faster than rail, Ceva adds.
