New Silk Road rail freight service cuts costs and transit times
08 Nov 2017 - Hong Kong (CN)
Three months after launching a rail freight service connecting destinations across the new Silk Road, we are already cutting costs and transit times for customers.
The service, called Tiger Rail, offers a 16-day transit time both east and westbound, between Tilburg, the Netherlands, Duisburg, Germany, and Lodz, Poland, and Hefei, Chongqing, and Chengdu, China.

We are planning to launch a new service for e-commerce customers shipping parcels to China.

"We are currently preparing test shipments for European Union (EU) Business-to-Consumer (B2C) parcels importing to China with Tiger Rail, and look forward to expanding our rail freight capabilities even further,” said Andreas Niklasch, Managing Director, Germany & Switzerland, Tigers.

Customers can charter a train, or book Full Container Load (FCL) or Less than Container Load (LCL) shipments on weekly scheduled services to and from over 15 origin stations in China.

"We have seized the opportunity to provide integrated logistics for our customers, who increasingly require shorter transit times than ocean freight, and lower costs than airfreight, making Tiger Rail the perfect solution,” said Paul Huang, Managing Director, China, Tigers.

"Our customers benefit from lower shipping costs by empty container return in Switzerland for westbound services, and Shipper’s Own Container (SOC) for eastbound services, for both FCL and LCL.

Tiger Rail customers can track and trace their freight shipments using the Tiger Trax platform.
