Davies Turner provides pioneering direct UK weekly rail services in conjunction with our long term partner in China, Air Sea Transport, who has years of experience in the China rail sector.

Since 2016 we have operated China to UK rail services for full load (FCL) and groupage (LCL) shipments, assisting clients with their supply chain needs in reducing lead times. The availability of our import rail services has been vital to clients since the advent of the pandemic, where many witnessed shipping line ocean transit time delays, port delays and having to consider the fact airfreight was cost prohibitive for many large volume or dense cargo shipments.

With confidence and demand for China rail freight services soaring, as evidenced by the 50,000th China-Europe intermodal train embarking on its journey towards the west at the beginning of February this year, we now feel the time is right to commence a dedicated weekly eastbound rail service for LCL cargo, having undertaken successful trials.

Davies Turner’s new direct weekly export LCL rail service from the UK to China will provide 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.
