BTG starts rail-container service China-Europe-China.
The new rail-container service is an interesting alternative to air and sea freight due to its relatively low cost factor and a comparatively short transit time.
For this reason in 2015 BTG (Bavaria Transport Group) started offering its customers from Russia, Europe, China and the CIS countries complex transport solutions in the world of rail freight. So in September 2015, in a festive atmosphere and under the participation of the Mayor of Lanzhou, senior staff members of SINOTRANS (the largest Chinese state-owned logistics company and BTG’s long-time partner) and BTG, the first full train with 45 containers was seen off from Lanzhou to Hamburg. The transit time one-way is only 14 days!
This service has been in such great demand that weekly departures from Wuhan, Chengdu, Chongqing, Zhengzhou to Moscow, Hamburg and Duisburg (and back) are now available to our customers with a transit time of no more than 13-15 days.
In addition, we also offer all related services: document handling, customs clearance, loading and unloading, etc.
