Trains run on time for Davies Turner

[ March 25, 2019   //   ]

Davies Turner says that it is achieving record transit times on its Express China Rail weekly LCL import service. Last week’s box arrived and was unpacked after just 19 days, compared with a scheduled transit time from the Wuhan rail hub to the forwarder’s Dartford depot of 22-24 days.

Tony Cole, head of supply chain services at Davies Turner said: “While Storm Gareth caused havoc recently, causing the closure of ports and delays to ocean freight shipments, our Express China Rail service has been suffering no such problems, arriving several days ahead of schedule.”
Containers are carried by rail from Wuhan to Duisburg in Germany from where they are then trucked under bond via Rotterdam and Purfleet to Dartford.
