DHL offers new rail options from China

[ September 17, 2014   //   ]

DHL Global Forwarding has improved its China/Europe rail service with a new scheduled block train with an average transit time of 14 days from Suzhou to Warsaw using the trans-Siberian North Corridor. CEO of DHL Global Forwarding, Freight Roger Crook described Suzhou as a strategic departure point for Jiangsu. Customers there would have direct access to inter-continental rail links rather than having to go via Chengdu.

It complements the existing daily single wagon service from Shanghai to Europe, also along the North Corridor, and the weekly block train service from Chengdu to Europe along China’s West Corridor rail line through Kazakhstan to Europe.
