  • DHL Global Forwarding grows its rail freight capacity in the Belt and Road network
  • New weekly LCL service between Duisburg and Chengdu to meet increasing demand
  • Lead time of up to 29 days for LCL shipments door-to-door from Europe to China

Bonn – The demand for rail freight capacity on the “New Silk Road” is continuously increasing, and this land connection is not a one-way street. Rail transport in the reverse direction, from Europe to Asia, is also rapidly growing. Shippers are more frequently exploring the train connections from the West to the East as a reasonable transport alternative. Within this context, DHL Global Forwarding, the air, ocean and rail freight specialist of Deutsche Post DHL Group, has introduced a new less-than-container load (LCL) service from Duisburg, Germany, to Chengdu, China.
