Can China-Europe Cargo Stay On Track?

China-Europe Cargo Rail On Track?

  Rail logistics on the China run from Asia into Europe is reportedly experiencing delays of up to a week. Shippers having discovered a price and service alternative to ocean and air, also find that all their best friends had the same idea.
  “Currently,” says the Hong Kong-based Global Supply Chain Council (GSCC), “there are 53 weekly trains into Europe and 23 headed back to Asia as of May 2017.”
  “During 2016, 40,000 containers moved by train between Asia and Europe,” DB Schenker adds.
That number Schenker said could almost triple by 2020.
  Other estimates put potential 2020 volumes at a lofty 500,000 FEUs.
  Next week on August 29, in Shanghai an event titled “The GSCC Rail Logistics Forum,” addresses issues between China and Europe for rail freight proponents.
  The one-day meeting will look for answers on how to keep cargo on track and the rails singing, as Christmas 2017 picks up steam.
