Kuehne + Nagel has launched a less than container load (LCL) on Europe-China rail route, complementing the company’s existing full container load (FCL) rail offering for import and export shipments.
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 services from the hub terminal Wuhan in China to Hamburg and Malaszewicze/Poznan (Poland).
“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,” Otto Schacht, member of the Management Board of Kuehne + Nagel International AG responsible for seafreight, said.
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.
