Departed from Xiamen, Fujian Province in China on April 21, this dedicated block train of medical cargoes carries forty-one 40’-container consignment to the United Kingdom. The train will stop at Duisburg, Germany, and the cargoes will be transferred to the UK by trucks in early May.

“We are proud of winning the trust from our customer as transporting medical cargoes needs extra dedication, especially when container shortages and port congestions are an industry-wide challenge across Asia. We will continue to work with rail partners in China to provide fast and reliable service to cater to customers’ needs,” says Candy Tang, Maersk Intercontinental Rail product manager, Maersk Greater China.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the demand for rapid antigen Self-test kits has increased. The client in the Pharmaceutical sector has purchased almost five hundred 40’-containers of these detection kits, and Maersk will arrange the transportation in the following two months.

”The supply chains for pharmaceutical customers include high levels of complexity, and we understand the need for reliability as well as the importance of products getting to the patients. Intercontinental rail is a good choice and can add value and alternative solution to their supply chain, helping them to secure greater resilience,” comments Hristo Petkov, global head of pharmaceuticals at Maersk.
