Zih Lcl China-europe Railway Express Less Than Container Load(lcl) From Zhengzhou
Introduction:Zhengzhou is located in central China, which is very convenient for combining cargo from neighboring provinces on its high-speed cargo train to Europe. The first cargo train from Zhengzhou to Europe dated back to Jul 18th,2013. Thanks to the surging volume, in 2016 the frequency has improved to be three trains a week westbound. Generally speaking, 95% of the cargo transported on China-Europe cargo block trains are 40ftcontainers. 20ft containers have to be loaded in pair on railway wagons and it's difficult to match two 20ft containers on one railway wagon because they need to have similar weight for safety reason. Then what can we do with cargo less than one 40ft container load? So this is the exact reason we are organizing consolidation service at Hefei for LCL cargo.On Zhengzhou-Europe block trains we have three LCL departures per week to Warsaw of Poland and Hamburg of Germany. From these two cities we can arrange distribution to all over Europe by LTL(Less than Truck Load) service.Service Advantages:1.Great saving compared to airfreight. Up to 75% lower than airfreight charges.2.Short transit time.13 days to Warsaw warehouse.15 days to Hamburg warehouse. At least 50% time is saved than shipping by sea.3.Transparent costs. No hidden costs compared with LCL cargo by sea.Our railway freight charges are all-inclusive and only subject to customs clearance charges and tax/duty.4.Great safety. Railway transportation is considered the safest transportation method compared to sea freight, air freight or trucking.5.Less cash-flow pressure. The shorter transit time means faster cash-flow and consequently more turnover is possible based on same amount of invested capital, which is very good news for high-value cargo owners.Service Frequency:Our Zhengzhou-Europe railway LCL has 3 departures per week.Service Coverage:The destinations in Europe are:Warsaw,Poland;Hamburg,Germany;Though the discharging train stations are limited, we can distribute the cargo from above-mentioned stations to all over Europe within 1-3 days of train arrival.Also,we can arrange cargo pick-up all over China to Zhengzhou train station with speedy trucking services within 1-2 days.
