Davies Turner are proud to operate the only direct dedicated weekly rail service for groupage and full load shipments from the UK to China,  providing clients with a fast, secure and competitive option for moving freight, when ocean is too slow and air too expensive.

SERVICE   Our experienced and highly trained rail team will ensure the smooth movement of your cargo from quotation stage through to final delivery.  Groupage (LCL) services depart from our Dartford hub where the sealed consolidation containers are trucked to Duisburg, Germany, before being transferred onto the train for the onward journey to Xi’an, China. Xi’an rail terminal is centrally located in the industrial heartland of China.  This strategic location offers fast and competitively priced transport links for our mainland China wide delivery service, which is provided by our long term partner, Air Sea Transport.  

ENVIRONMENT   With our need to be more aware of the environment and the impact that transporting goods long distances can have, rail again proves it's worth offering a greener, cleaner option in comparison to air, where it is reported a 40' container moving via rail with 20 tons of cargo would account for just 4% of the CO2 emissions it would take to move the same shipment by air.
