DHL starts second Chengdu-Europe rail link cuts costs, transit times

5/15/2013 9:57:39 AM

PROVIDER of air, sea and road freight services in Europe and Asia, DHL Global Forwarding, has introduced a second routing option for customers keen on capitalising on its existing road/rail multi-modal overland service connecting Asia and Europe.

A company statement said Chengdu-based customers in particular can now board DHL's once-a-week service departing every Friday from Chengdu to Europe along China's West Corridor rail line through Kazakhstan and via DHL's intermodal hub in Malaszewicze, Poland.

The new weekly service comes as an addition to DHL's already successful daily service - departing from Shanghai and running along the trans-Siberian North Corridor - with a transit time difference of up to eight days. In turn, the new service also offers greater cost and CO2 emission reductions.

DHL is the only forwarder offering regular, daily rail departures to and from China via its intermodal hub in Malaszewicze, Poland.
