China’s rail shipments to Europe set records

Date Added: 24 August 2020

Davies Turner notes a recent report in the South China Morning Post (SCMP), which states that the volume of China’s belt and road railway cargo to Europe has set records for five consecutive months as Covid-19 has limited transport by air and sea while causing an increase in the demand for Chinese-made medical supplies abroad.

The article says that the latest figures from the state-owned railway builder, also known as China Railway, showed that a total of 1,232 trains were arranged from different Chinese cities to European destinations in July. It was the highest monthly figure ever, and an increase of 68 per cent from a year earlier.

We are also seeing increasing volumes of LCL cargo being experienced on our direct weekly fixed-day LCL and FCL rail freight services between China and the UK, which has prompted us to add other UK destinations that will be served directly from China.
