Rail Transport

Reliable and Cost-Efficient Transport

Rail transport ensures shorter lead time than sea freight and is a cheaper alternative to air freight.

Schedule reliability and reduced environmental impact

Choosing a rail solution is a great alternative to the prevailing air and sea freight solutions.

Sending major shipments by rail instead of by air is an efficient way to save money – and the transit time for rail is shorter than for sea freight. At the same time, rail transport is more environmentally sustainable emitting less CO2.

Through our existing network Continental Logistics can offer competitive solutions for FCL an LCL between Europe and China.

By rail we can offer a steady, reliable service reducing the total transit time from door to door at affordable rates.

High-quality freight solutions

Rail transport is a very reliable mode of transport with fixed departure times, station-to-station setup. Additionally, rail solutions are not affected by weather in the same way as air and sea freight.

Multimodal compatibility

The trailers and containers used for rail solutions are compatible with road freight. This means that time will be saved for unloading and reloading cargo at transit point.

If you have any questions, you are always more than welcome to reach out to your local Continental Logistics contact.
