Testimonials

This is the first import of groupage we have done via your company from the Hassleholm area of Sweden. Your service has been impeccable and your customer services are superb. We have dealt with many a freight forwarder/shipping company who have never given us accurate/precise information. Instead they have told us your goods maybe or should be delivered soon!. Whereas your Import Department gave us clear facts in relation to the shipping date, arrival date and delivery date both verbally and by email. We pride ourselves on our service when we sell our products to our clients and it is great to deal with a like minded company who pride themselves on the same values as us. We import candies for shows and exhibitions and it is important to both us and our clients that the stock is made available to us on our required delivery dates, else our (our clients) stands would be empty!. It is great that you have kept me fully informed and assured of when we receive our goods. It's nice to know that you understand the fuller picture and the knock on effect for importers when goods are not delivered on time. Next year our import traffic will have increased considerably and we shall be using your groupage services from Sweden. We have full confidence in you, thankyou for being so helpful.

First freight train between China UK arrives in Yiwu

Tags: ,


The first freight train to link China directly with the UK arrived in Yiwu eastern China, on Saturday 30 April, after covering over 12,000-kilometres (7,500 miles), making it the second-longest train route in the world.

China launched the “One Belt, One Road” strategy in 2013, and has since poured millions into constructing vast infrastructure links.

The freight train — loaded with whisky, baby milk, pharmaceuticals and machinery — departed London on April 10 and passed through France, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan during its 20-day trip.
London is the 15th city to be linked to a new freight network offered by the state-run China Railway Corporation, which says its services are cheaper than air transport and quicker than shipping.

The journey should be 30 days faster than moving the freight by ship, the provincial government had said, but this pilot run took two days longer than the expected 18 days.

And the train, named the East Wind, has much less freight carrying capacity than a ship. The train can carry 88 shipping containers, according to the Yiwu government, compared with the 10,000 to 20,000 containers cargo ships can carry.

China already has a regular direct freight train service to Germany;
one route links the Chinese megacity of Chongqing to Duisburg, a steel-making town and the other route links Beijing, the Chinese capital, to Hamburg, Germany’s second-largest city.
