In September a new weekly LCL shipping service began between Rotterdam and Asia. The new services which are guaranteed to operate, will improve the supply chain between Asia and Europe, reducing transit times by two to four days and carbon emissions by up to 6.6%.
The three services:Shanghai to Rotterdam, Hong Kong to Rotterdam and Singapore to Rotterdam will be quicker for customers, as they will no longer be routed via the LCL hub in Antwerp.
Freight destined for Rotterdam (Netherlands) should arrive from Shanghai (China) within 26 days, Hong Kong (China) within 22 days or Singapore within 18 days. r. Compared to previous routings, CO2 emissions are reduced by 5.3% between Shanghai and Rotterdam, by 5.6% between Hong Kong and Rotterdam, and by 6.5% between Singapore and Rotterdam.
