Kerry launches China-Pakistan express

[ November 23, 2018   //   ]

Kerry Logistics has launched its first rail and road multimodal freight service from Lanzhou, China to Islamabad, Pakistan. The first train departed Lanzhou by block train on 23 October 2018, and travelled 3,300 km to the Kashgar Comprehensive Bonded Zone in Xinjiang for transfer to trucks for the remaining 1,200km to Islamabad. The journey, which reached altitudes of 5,000 m was completed in just 13 days, 15 days less than for ocean-road freight. It is Kerry Logistics’ second international freight route between Lanzhou and South Asia following the launch of the freight train service from Lanzhou to Kathmandu, Nepal.
