Sweden Groupage Exporter

The import from Sweden that RW Freight Services carried out for my company ran very smoothy without any problems. I will continue to use RW Freight Services for my freight forwarding needs as they provide a top quality service.

Import from Sweden

You do a fantastic job for me! I didn't realise why you chase me for my clients contact names & telephone numbers. I now understand from your import department that it is because you contact my clients to advise them of the impending delivery and to find out their opening times and to ensure that they have equipment onsite to offload. This is superb, it saves me a great deal of work and just as important is the fact that my clients receive their cargo when they are able to take delivery and hire in equipment to offload if necessary. This saves me wasted journey charges for failed deliveries. A lot of forwarders do not do this, they just get an import job & deliver it without contacting the end receiver.

China drought affects shipping

Although rain is now giving relief from China’s six month drought, navigation for cargo shipping is still restricted on the Yangtze river – the longest river in Asia – as conditions vary from drought to flood.

The drought suspended cargo shipping along a 224-kilometer (140-mile) stretch in the middle and lower reaches of the river and exacerbated power shortages at the beginning of the peak summer season.

The Yangtze River carries more cargo than any other river in the world, carrying 1.5 billion tons in 2010 according to the 2010 Yangtze River Merchant Shipping Report released on May 23. It transported three times as much cargo as the Mississippi River and five times as much as the Rhine.

Merchant shipping on the river has contributed  120 billion yuan directly and 2000 billion yuan indirectly to the economic growth of the coastal cities.  The shipping business has also created 200 jobs.

The shipping capacity of the Yangtze River artery has been expanded  during the last five years and the construction of coastal ports was accelerated.  Xix 100-million-ton harbours have been completed, which are in Suzhou, Nantong, Jiangyin, Nanjing, Zhenjiang and Wuhan.
