China – Europe Rail Freight
In recent years, China Railway has shipped freight through the famous Silk Road railway that connects 12,000 kilometres of track via the Trans-Siberian Railway, therefore allowing both importers and exporters to ship to and from China in a fast and cost-effective way.
There are two key rail links / routes: the first one starts in the north of China and connects with the famous Trans-Siberian (Russia), the second goes west through Kazakhstan before catching up with the Trans-Siberian Railway in Yekaterinburg, which is a key junction for rail freight in the Western part. In addition, these routes provide logistics solutions for the shipment of oversized shipments.
