Rail shipping faster and quicker transportation service than sea freight from China to Germany by Senghor Logistics

Short Description:

Are you being bothered for the longer transitting time ( 7-15 days more )  from China to Germany due to the Red Sea attack?

Don’t worry, Senghor Logistics are able to offer you rail freight service from China to Germany, which is much faster than by sea.

You know what???

Usuaully it takes 27-35 days shipping by sea from China to Hamburg and now another 7-15 days more due to vessel companies change their route via South Africa, so it leads to total 34- 50 days shipping by sea now. But if by train freight, it usually takes 15-18 days to Duisburg or Hamburg only, which saves more than 1 half of the time!

Besides, when arriving in Germany, we can also provide customs clearance and door-to-door delivery services.

Introduce Senghor Logistics' rail freight service

We believe you have heard that due to recent tensions in the Red Sea, the sailing time of container ships from Asia to Europe has been increased by at least 10 days. This also triggered a chain reaction, with container freight prices rising sharply.

So we suggest some European customers to consider other modes of transportation, and rail freight is one of them. Senghor Logistics is one of the earliest cross-border transportation units of China-Europe Railway Express, providing high-quality rail cross-border logistics services for international trade between China and Germany and other European countries.

What needs to be paid attention to?

Weather Impact

Weather conditions, such as extreme temperatures, snow, or other environmental factors, can affect railway transportation. It's crucial to consider seasonal variations and potential disruptions to ensure the reliability of the shipping schedule.

Cargo Balancing

Balancing the cargo within the containers is critical for safe transportation. Uneven loading can lead to accidents, damage to goods, or even derailments. Proper packaging and loading practices should be adhered to, and our experienced staff often provides guidance on secure cargo handling.

Stringent Audit for Chemical Products and Batteries

Rail freight export and import, especially for chemical products and items with batteries, is subject to strict regulations and audits. Providing accurate and comprehensive information well in advance is essential for compliance. This may include detailed product information, safety data sheets (SDS), and other relevant documentation.
