Rail Services

In addition to conventional modes of transport for full containers and break-bulk, GROUP7 also offers transportation via rail as a cost efficient, timely and eco-friendly alternative for shipping your goods to and from China. Compared to conventional airfreight you can cut costs by up to 50% and halve the transit time compared to regular ocean freight shipments.

Multiple weekly departures from various terminals offer sufficient capacities and fullest flexibility even during peak season. Furthermore, the transport via rail causes significantly less CO2 emissions than via airfreight. Using our GROUP7 CO2 calculator, you can conduct a simple calculation of the amount of CO2 emissions from door to door.

Through the short transit time of approximately 13 to 15 days a quicker market placement of seasonal goods is possible.
