Rail Freight in Europe

Tags: , , ,


Ten years ago the China Government proposed to build a robust rail network to connect Europe and China.

The development was not welcomed by logistics service providers and shipping liners.

Now the rail freight network connects approximately 34 European cities with 35 Chinese cities.

It is estimated that in 2017 more than 3000 container trains ran between the two continents. The share of the freight market by cargo value increased by 144% in the first half of 2017.

The international union of railways (UIC) estimated that the China-Europe rail freight services is expected to double its share of trade by volume over the next decade.
