Affected by blanked sailings? Talk to us about our express China rail services

Are you suffering from the increased incidents of shipping lines resorting to more aggressive blanking strategies in order to manage a dip in demand and decreasing freight spot rates, which the Loadstar recently reported.

We read that the 2M alliance (Maersk and MSC) is “the most aggressive, cutting back its services by as much as 71% in the second week in May” and are concerned that the effects of this might be further exacerbated by other tactics including more slow-steaming, in order to underpin rates and mitigate the impact of soaring bunker costs.

If so, and you are moving containers between China and the UK, please get in touch so that we can tell you more about our direct weekly China Express rail service, which offers an overland service for full load (FCL) and groupage (LCL) shipments, assisting clients to overcome shipping line ocean transit time delays, port delays as well as the cost prohibitive option of using airfreight for large volume or dense cargo shipments.

We also offer a direct weekly export LCL rail service from the UK to China, providing clients with the same benefits as our import rail services, offering transit time savings in comparison to ocean freight and cost savings when compared to air freight.

In addition, we are confident that our unique LCL export rail service will deliver the same rate stability achieved by our import services, a boon during the turbulent times that have, and still are, being experienced on ocean and air freight services.

For more information about our import or export rail services between China and the UK please take a look at our rail guides on this website or contact
