Rail Transport

Rail transport is an alternative new solution within supply chain management; it addresses the environmental concerns of enterprises wishing to reduce carbon emissions. Rail transport departing from Asia to Europe in both ways is an attractive solution: faster than sea freight and less expensive than air freight. Goods can be transported through Eurasia routes, through China, then Russia or Kazakhstan to European lands like Hamburg, Duisburg, Warsaw, or Spain from 15 to 20 days.
