Dachser Organizes First Westbound Block Train from China to Germany

Dachser has been completed their first westbound block train from China to Germany. Fifty FEU containers carrying chemical, industrial and retail goods departed from Suzhou, China and reached its destination terminal at Ludwigshafen, Germany in 31 days.

The “New Silk Road”, connecting China to Europe via Erenhot in Mongolia, then Russia, Belarus and Poland, offers an overland route with stable conditions for transporting chemical goods, and this option is faster than container sea freight ships.

On top of chemical products, Dachser is seeing a trend that more customers from diversified industries have shown interest in intermodal transportation.

“The pandemic has brought more demand on rail freight due to the shortage of air and sea freight capacity. The current peak season has added fuel to the market, so it brings even more customers from various industries, such as retail to look for rail as an alternative solution,” said Yves Larquemin, Managing Director Air & Sea Logistics Far East North.

“Shipping by rail is more reliable in terms of time, customers can avoid blank sailing by vessel carriers or sudden flight cancellations. In terms of cost, rail freight is more economical than air.”
