KN Eurasia Express connects new rail transport service between China and Europe
Feb 23, 2017: KN Eurasia Express connects China, Russia and Europe. In addition to its established FCL service with Duisburg as the main European handling hub, Kuehne + Nagel now provides own LCL services from the hub terminal Wuhan in China to Hamburg and Poland. In total, Kuehne + Nagel serves more than 50 collection points in the People's Republic of China, including key locations such as Shengyang, Chongqing, Chengdu and Zhengzhou. Besides import, the offering also includes FCL and LCL export shipments from Europe to Asia. KN Eurasia Express is targeted in particular at customers from the automotive, high-tech, and fashion industries.
Otto Schacht, member of the management board of Kuehne + Nagel International AG responsible for seafreight, said, “KN Eurasia Express represents a perfect mobility chain door to door. With transit times of between 14 and 18 days from departure to destination terminal, we offer our customers much faster delivery times compared to maritime transport, at lower costs compared to airfreight. Reliable departure and transit times ensure planning reliability. By using our KN Login information platform, our customers can also access fully transparent information about the status of their deliveries.”
Cargo security is a main issue; Kuehne + Nagel ensures the highest security standards at terminals and, in particular, enhanced container seals for its KN Eurasia Express shipments. GPS based data monitoring delivers real time data on temperature, humidity, pressure, light exposure and 2 of 2 position of the containers. Temperature sensitive goods can be shipped in 45 foot long reefer containers.
The KN Eurasia Express product also covers countries in the European periphery. First block trains have already been successfully dispatched to Turkey. Own LCL services between China and Russia are being planned.
