Davies Turner is proud to provide a pioneering direct UK weekly rail service in conjunction with our long term partners in China, Air Sea Transport, who has years of experience in the China rail sector.

Since 2016 we have been offering import and export China/UK rail services for full load (FCL) and groupage (LCL) shipments, assisting clients with their supply chain needs when orders are running behind schedule, at times of peak ocean demand, when an ocean sailing has been missed, for larger shipments or dense cargo that makes air freight prohibitive.

On an international level, rail freight from China has increased from 25,000 TEU in 2014 to 325,000 TEU in 2018 and is proving a very popular choice for our customers in the UK, with over 65% of bookings coming from repeat business.

It is easy to understand the popularity of our rail product, when compared to ocean it offers significantly reduced transit times, up to 22 days saving from Northern China, along with stable market conditions enabling us to offer rates with extended validities. In comparison to air it is not only significantly cheaper, up to 70% less, but also has the benefit of being a more environmentally friendly option, an important consideration for many companies.
