CEVA Starts Rail Service Between Guangdong Province in China and Germany

CEVA Starts Rail Service Between Guangdong Province in China and Germany

CEVA Logistics has launched a new rail service linking Shilong in southern China’s Guangdong province to Hamburg in Germany. In conjunction with the Chinese state railway company, the new regular block trains will follow this route: Shilong, Manzhouli (China), Zabakalsky (Russia), Brest (Belarus), Malaszewicze (Poland) and Hamburg.

With a station-to-station lead time of 17-19 days, this new year-round service solution will save up to 2 days transit time compared with other routings, delivering cost savings as a result.

CEVA first initiated its China-to-Europe rail services from Suzhou in 2010, and has built a network encompassing key Chinese cities through its “northern route” operation to European destinations, where they then uses their extensive trucking network for onward delivery to major European cities. In addition to the new “southern route” and its existing “northern route” CEVA also operates a “middle route” via Mongolia to Europe to shorten lead times during the winter months and peak season.

“This new link further extends our comprehensive rail services between China and Europe and enables us to provide customers with a reliable, highly secure door-to-door service with real-time track and trace along the route,” states Kelvin Tang, CEVA’s Head of Cross Border, Greater China.
