From camels to trains: the new Eurasian rail network

KLG-ITM prizes itself for being at the foreground of logistic innovation. We utilize and cooperate with the Trans-Eurasian railway initiative that combines Europe with China via an extensive railway network. This ‘New Silk Road’ has replaced the camels of old with modern trains, and connects Chinese cities such as Xi’an, Zhengzhou or Chongqing with European cities such as Duisburg and Hamburg. The renewed Silk Road opens up whole new opportunities for cross-continental logistics.

The third option

Contrary to air cargo and ocean freight, the rail option offers a unique middle ground which is both fast and affordable. With only a transit time of 15 days and the option of cooled 20’ and 40’ container (reefers), this new modality provides a real innovative alternative. With the ability to transport a wide variety of goods, from flowers to high-tech electrical components, the rail option is exponentially growing. Its the greenest option too, if your looking to reduce your carbon footprint.
