Advantages of China-Europe Express

The reason why many companies favor China-Europe Express is that, compared with air or sea freight, China-Europe Express has unique advantages.


Although air transportation is fast, the cost is relatively high. In addition, due to the strict control of routes affected by the epidemic, it is more difficult for companies to transport goods by air. Although the shipping volume is large, many seaports worldwide are currently heavily congested, and port staff is inefficient in handling cargo, which greatly reduces the timeliness of shipping. In addition, the shipping itself has the risk of personal contact and the spread of the new crown virus. A "steel camel procession" steadily redirected the transportation pressure conveyed via ocean, particularly after the Suez Canal channel experienced a "century blockage" in March this year.

Compared with ocean freight, although the current freight rates of China-Europe Express trains continue to rise, they are still lower than or the same as ocean freight rates. Che Tan, deputy director of the International Express Consulting Service Center of the China Transportation Association, said: “As the freight rates are close, the China-Europe Express Express has high timeliness, strong safety, and is conducive to epidemic prevention and control, and its containers have naturally become companies. The object of competition."
