Kerry Logistics Launches UK-China Rail Service
Danny Gill

Kerry Logistics has helped to launch an eastbound freight train from London to Yiwu with the support of a long standing customer. Kerry Logisitcs says this is a significant step forward in the Group’s development strategy in line with the ‘One Belt One Road’ Initiative, and also a strategic move advancing the Group’s further expansion into the rail freight and multimodal services.

The train departed from London and is scheduled to arrive in eastern China’s Yiwu in around 18 days. The 7,500-mile journey will pass through nine countries, including France, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan. The freight cost is lower than that of air and ocean freight, while it is twice as fast as ocean transport.

William Ma, Group Managing Director of Kerry Logistics, said, “We are extremely excited to be the first Asia-based global 3PL to move eastbound freight from Europe along the One Belt One Road trade route, turning part of the roadmap into reality. We are committed to developing an overland transportation network for road, rail and multimodal freight services in China to Central Asia and Europe. We will leverage our global international freight forwarding network to provide end-to-end and cost-effective logistics solutions to connect China with Europe and Asia via air, road, rail and sea.”
