China rail on the right lines

[ July 15, 2020   //   ]

Davies Turner says that container traffic on its Express China rail freight service has doubled year-on-year. Weekly LCL volumes on the service have increased from one to two 40-foot high cube consol containers per week last year to three to four. Davies Turner says the news that April was the busiest month to date for China-Europe freight train departures mirrors its own experience on its direct Express China Rail service. Reports indicate that 976 container freight trains departed for Europe from various places in China during April – a 47% year-on-year increase. Davies Turner launched its own dedicated weekly fixed-day rail consol import service from China to the UK in November 2018.
