The Silk Road by truck

Shipping and air transport capacities have been significantly reduced this year due to the coronavirus crisis and transport costs are rising accordingly.
As a further alternative to air freight or transport by train, transport by truck has now become established on the new Silk Road from China to Europe.

With transit times of 12-16 days from door to door, the transit time of the train can be reduced by up to 2 weeks.
In contrast to the train, hazardous goods such as batteries or temperature-controlled goods can also be transported here.

In addition to the lower freight rates compared to air freight, other advantages are the independence from airports or railway stations, as well as the flexibility of departure days, which can be determined individually.

Various trailers are also available, such as the megatrailer with up to 100 CBM, refrigerated lorries or low-loaders for heavy and large goods.

For further information on this and all other logistics topics, your contact at Dörrenhaus will be happy to help you at any time.

Your Dörrenhaus team
