DHL Expands China-Europe Rail Service

4/3/2014 8:38:59 AM

Logistics firm DHL has signed a new agreement to provide rail freight services between China and Europe via a strategic partnership with United Transport and Logistics Company, a joint venture between OJSC Russian Railways, JSC National Company Kazakhstan Temir Zholy and state-owned Belarusian Railway.

UTLC, which is expected to start operating later this year, will offer door-to-door delivery of containers through regular train services on the route.

“Our partnership leverages both groups’ strengths to accelerate the development of rail forwarding services on the China-Europe-China route with UTLC providing all rail services in Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, and DHL providing third party logistics and door-to-door delivery,” said Steve Huang, CEO of DHL Global Forwarding China, in a written statement. “For our customers, it will mean a one-stop, one price service.”

“UTLC will be responsible for operating station-to-station rail service, including procurement of the rolling stock, and all related services on the route as well as pricing,” said Zhanar Rymzhanova, CEO of UTLC.

The deal follows the January launch of temperature-controlled rail services by DHL, part of DeutschePost DHL, on the China-Europe trade lane.
