First shipment travels China-to-Europe route

cargo-partner has begun offering a new transport option as a supplement to the existing rail transport services on the Iron Silk Road in response to increased demand in China.

The Middle Corridor of the New Silk Road has become an increasingly viable alternative to air, sea and rail transport with cargo-partner adding it as a flexible China-Europe route choice. The first trip took place in early July and consisted of a temperature-controlled shipment of lithium batteries for an automotive customer.

By closely monitoring the changing local circumstances, cargo-partner can flexibly select the most favourable route and border crossing for each individual shipment. Transit times vary depending on the origin and destination points and currently average 22 to 25 days.

In addition to the competitive transit times, the new transport option has the advantage of being able to move goods that cannot be shipped by air or rail.
