Rail

Has your business considered rail as a viable alternative to ocean? This year we expect demand for rail services into Europe to be 7% greater than sea!

As an asset-light organisation, with a knowledgeable and experienced rail team, we are dedicated to finding the right solution for your business. We understand that rail services from Asia to Europe are becoming a more increasingly attractive option to both ocean and air services. As such we offer door-to-door and door-to-terminal services to and from China via various rail hubs in Western Europe.

Where lead time is prioritised over cost rail is an option to be considered by every business in today’s demanding marketplace. In comparison to ocean you can achieve a 12-15 day reduction in transit time, providing door-to-door delivery with stable transit times and fixed departure schedules. A further point to consider when reviewing your freight requirements is that rail is considered the most environmentally friendly transport mode, with less Co2 emissions than ocean and air.

Our current rail services include:

  • FCL
  • Buyer Consolidation
  • LCL
  • OOG
  • Labelling
  • Packing and protecting

For further information on our rail services please contact your local Ligentia office, or complete the enquiry form and a member of our rail team will contact you within 48hrs.
