Our enhanced service offers a faster transit, greater security and reduced costs, with cargo being loaded into consol containers at the Wuhan CFS managed by our partner and only discharged on arrival at our Dartford depot, from where goods are customs cleared and delivered to the customer’s door.

Fixed Weekly Service Guide – Wuhan to Dartford Direct

With the majority of Chinese factories being situated inland and away from the main ports, Wuhan CFS Rail Terminal is ideally located in central China, enabling impressive transit time savings when compared to ocean freight, as detailed in our guide;

Davies Turner’s rail services are provided in conjunction with our long term partners in China, Air Sea Transport, who have years of experience in the FCL & LCL China rail sector and offer China wide collection of LCL consolidation cargo from over 200 cities, with a transit time of 1-3 days dependent on location.

In addition to our new direct consol service, we provide a range of import and export rail options for FCL & LCL movements, covering both the UK and Europe, affording customers with a third freight option which is up to 18 days quicker than sea freight and 60% cheaper than air.

We have seen during the two years of providing rail services how this option has assisted clients supply chain needs and with proven schedule reliability, secure market conditions and competitive rates, rail is proving to be an increasingly popular choice. If a client is experiencing issues with orders running behind schedule, at times of peak ocean demand, when an ocean sailing has been missed or as with the current ocean market conditions where vessels have been cut and running or omitting UK ports, then rail is a viable service option, particularly so for larger shipments or dense cargo where the cost of air freight can prove prohibitive.
