The addition of the rail service to our portfolio enables our clients to access established services with transit time savings of up to 14 days door to door between China and the UK, compared to sea freight, at a cost of 50-60% lower than air freight, with both LCL and FCL options available.

The rail service is focused predominantly on China currently, with fixed multiple weekly departures, along with a new option for Taiwan and additional routes in Asia expected to be introduced in the near future.

We have both import and export rail services;

Rail can assist clients supply chain needs and is proving a popular choice 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. Combined with the benefit of stable competitive rates and secure market conditions, rail freight offers a viable alternative service which is faster than ocean and cheaper than air.
