DSV Transports Cargo from China to Europe by Truck in 15-17 Days

When COVID-19 closed borders and grounded more than 90% of passenger airplanes, air cargo capacity was slashed and prices on the remaining capacity soared. As a response, DSV’s transportation by truck options have become more appealing.

Transit time for air freight from Shanghai, China to an airport in Western Europe is now around 8 days, last month it was up to 14 days.

With the still unusually high prices for air freight due to capacity constraints, road transport from China to Western Europe in just two and a half weeks is an attractive alternative.

“Our road transport service from Eastern China to Western Europe has gained in popularity while the COVID-19 crisis has spread throughout the continents as it is a viable alternative to both air, sea and rail,” says Manager Tine Jørgensen (Rail & Gateway) from our Air & Sea division and continues: “Our global network combined with a strong, local presence enables us to offer this attractive solution to our customers.”
