Tiger Rail connecting new Silk Road destinations
September 12, 2017: Tigers has launched a new rail freight service, called Tiger Rail, offering customers a 16-day transit time both east and westbound, between Duisburg, Germany, and Hefei, Chongqing, and Chengdu, China.
Tiger Rail customers can charter a train, or book Full Container Load (FCL) or Less than Container Load (LCL) shipments on weekly scheduled services to and from over 15 origin stations in China.
The Hong Kong-headquartered supply chain specialist is also planning to offer e-commerce customers shipping parcels from Europe to China a cost-effective service along the new Silk Road.
“We have seized the opportunity to provide integrated logistics for our customers, who increasingly require shorter transit times than ocean freight, and lower costs than airfreight, making Tiger Rail the perfect solution,” said Paul Huang, managing director, Tigers China.
“Our customers benefit from lower shipping costs by empty container return in Switzerland for westbound services, and Shipper’s Own Container (SOC) for eastbound services, for both FCL and LCL.”
“Tigers has already supported customers to transport over 500 TEUs as FCL, and 1500 cubic meters (CBMs) as LCL along the new Silk Road.”
Tiger Rail’s inaugural shipment took place over the summer, on behalf of one of the largest manufacturers of exhaust and suspension systems, which chartered a train to transport construction materials, auto parts, and electronics.
“We are currently preparing test shipments for European Union (EU) Business to Consumer (B2C) parcels importing to China with Tiger Rail, and look forward to expanding our rail freight capabilities even further,” said Andrew Jillings, chief executive officer and group managing director, Tigers.
Tiger Rail customers can track and trace their freight shipments using the Tiger Trax platform.
The launch of Tiger Rail comes only weeks after Tigers achieved Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) certification in the UK, expanded its footprint with a new office in Leeds, and launched a post-Brexit solution to combat any disruption caused by Brexit.
