Warsaw, Poland, August 15, 2017 - Euroconsol, a leading neutral global NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and freight consolidator, today announces a new, direct LCL (less than container load) and FCL (full container load) Silk Road import rail service from Chengdu, China to Pruszkow, Poland. On-carriage is offered from the Pruszkow, Poland hub to Hamburg and Rotterdam which is a 2-day transit. Additional on-forwarding will be offered to Praha, Vienna, Helsinki and Budapest in the near future.
The service connects to all major cities in China via transshipment. An Eastbound Poland to Chengdu service will be available in September from Euroconsol. A significant benefit of rail compared to ocean transport is speed. The rail route from Southwest China is approximately 15 days shorter to Poland.
The service is in collaboration with iCargo Alliance and Eurasia International Group. Chengdu International Railway Service Co Ltd. manages the intercontinental rail network running between Asia and Europe. Founded in 2012, the iCargo Alliance is a global NVOCC network of top brands in their respective countries. It was founded by C P World Group and Fan Cheng International Transportation Services Co, Ltd.
"This Silk Road rail service is an exciting transportation development that is efficient and fast for shipments between China and Europe. Chengdu is located in Southwestern Sichuan province an ideal hub location for China-Europe shipments. We anticipate this service growing in popularity due to the speed with which it reaches European markets. In addition, it bypasses the congestion at some European port locations," said Maciej Mazurkiewicz, chairman and CEO of Euroconsol.
