Rail freightthe environmentally conscious middle man.

In earlier times, rail transport ensured that products such as silk and spices were transported to and from China. Throughout the years, rail transport started to fade into the background. Partly due to the time lost coupling and disconnection of wagons. But also because of a sub-standard rail network. In order to stimulate international trade, China has invested a lot in the railway network in recent years.

Rail transport perfectly suits companies looking for a faster solution than sea freight.

Therefore, we nowadays see more and more (luxury) goods passing by on the railways. Think of electronics and clothing, or trend-sensitive products and raw materials. Especially in times when airlines and shipping companies are struggling with capacity problems, a container by rail can offer you a solution. An environmentally-conscious solution that perfectly suits companies looking for a faster solution than sea freight. MOL Logistics is more than happy to support you if you want to utilise this mode of transport.

Fast turn around time

Rail transport has a relatively short transit time and is somewhat faster than sea freight. For instance, your products or raw materials can be delivered from China to The Netherlands within 15 to 20 days via Chengdu, Shanghai, Hefei, Changsha or Wuhan. With subsequent deliveries throughout Europe. This is because freight trains are not submitted to the same driving time restrictions as lorry drivers, and congestion isn’t an issue on the railways. In addition, various parties are working to further reduce the transit time.
