Cargo-partner recently organized a full train from Linz, Austria to Qingdao, China on behalf of the international fiber manufacturer. The block train consists of a total of 46 forty-foot containers, loaded with responsibly produced fibers made from the renewable raw material wood. The shipment departed for its journey across the “Iron Silk Road” on Friday, October 9 and is set to arrive at its destination station in Xi’an, China, in 16 days.
Both Lenzing and cargo-partner strategically rely on rail transport via the New Silk Road as an environmentally friendly, fast and cost-efficient alternative to air and seafreight. After Lenzing sent a first train from Vienna to Shanghai at the end of August, cargo-partner has now been commissioned to organize the transport of a train from Linz to Qingdao.
Cargo-partner owner and CEO Stefan Krauter said: “cargo-partner and Lenzing AG have been working together successfully for more than 10 years, especially in the field of seafreight. When Lenzing recently approached us due to a short-term increase in demand from China and asked for a reliable transport alternative via the Iron Silk Road, our experienced team immediately set about organizing this train.”
Marco Schlimpert (Lenzing): “Due to the high demand from Chinese brands and retailers for sustainably produced fibers, we are delivering TENCEL™ branded Lyocell and Modal fibers directly to our customers in China by rail. This allows us to transport our goods in an environment-friendly way, and moreover it ensures that the goods reach our customers in China twice as fast as on the usual sea route.”
“This unique project is not only proof of Upper Austria’s export power, but also and especially of the environmental commitment and climate innovations of the local industry. Our hope is that climate protection and ‘Made in Upper Austria’ will become inseparable terms in the future. Today, we took a strong step in this direction,” emphasized Thomas Stelzer, Governor of Upper Austria.
