CEVA Logistics has launched a new China to Europe rail service following a successful trial. Total transit time from Suzhou in China, via Russia to the Netherlands is about 28 days. The service is cheaper than airfreight and 13-15 days quicker than sea, says Ceva, and it also offers the flexibility of daily departures from Suzhou. For the trial service, the shipment was loaded during China’s spring festival travel season, the peak period for rail transport and temperatures were as low as -38 degrees centigrade.
