China Railway Express under the Belt and Road Initiative


China Railway Express under the Belt and Road Initiative

Since China advocated the "Belt and Road" construction and revived China's "Silk Road", China's trade with Russia, Belarus, five Central Asian countries, and European countries has developed rapidly. The development of business needs the support of logistics development, and the development of logistics needs the investment of strong logistics infrastructure. Thus came the "China Railway Express"

In the past few years, China has invested a lot of money in the construction of railways leading to Europe. Up to now, it has basically opened up train lines leading to Europe in all major directions across the country. Increase the number of railway container export yards, customs inspection and inspection windows, improve the efficiency of international railway customs, and cooperate with the China-Europe Railway Express to do a good job of release. Added containers for turnover. The logistics facilities and related services in China are quite sufficient to meet the existing market demand.

The China-Europe Railway Express has been able to provide full container containers directly to the destination state of the railway station until now: Nuremberg/Duisburg/Hamburg/Munich Railway Station in Germany; Tilburg Railway Station in the Netherlands; Moscow Railway Station in Russia Three train stations in Malaszewicz/Lodz/Warsaw in Poland; Budapest Railway Station in Hungary; among them, there are the most trains to Germany, basically all the "Belt and Road" China-Europe trains from various cities in China There are rail transport services to Germany.

China to Europe international railway LCL is not limited to the railway station, more flexibly can be unpacked from the railway station and transit customs, truck transport to all European countries, including: Austria, Croatia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Germany, Czech Republic, Romania, Italy, Estonia, Bulgaria, Belgium, Poland, Denmark, France, Netherlands, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Monaco, Sweden, United Kingdom, Ireland ,Finland, Portugal ,Spain, Greece.

The route of the China Railway Express  

The China Railway Express is still in the preliminary development stage so far. China has a vast territory, and it is impossible to develop it from scratch within a few years. The construction site of the line needs a process, gradually perfected. Here are a few China-Europe Express lines that have been opened and operated more maturely, so that everyone can better understand the corresponding services for international railway transportation.

  • Zhengzhou-Europe Railway Express, railway transportation from Zhengzhou to Europe, the European railway stations are Malaszewicz (PL) in Poland and Hamburg/Munich (DE) in Germany. There are many departure trains, basically there is a train to Europe every day.

  • Yuxinou (Chongqing-Xinjiang-Europe) International Railway, the railway transportation from Chongqing, China to Europe, the first main railway line from China to Europe, with many European service points and perfect services.

  • Harbin Railway Station: Departs from Harbin Railway Station to Europe

  • Chengdu-Europe Express: Railway transportation from Chengdu to Poland in Europe, and from Chengdu in China to Europe. The departure railway station is Chengdu Chengxiang Station, and the destination railway station is Lodz, Poland/Nuremberg, Germany/Tilburg, the Netherlands. The weekly departure frequency of the Chengdu-Europe Railway Express is similar to that of the Zhengzhou-Europe Railway Express. Its biggest advantage is that it can directly reach the Netherlands and deliver goods from China to the Netherlands in the shortest time.

  • Suzhou-Manzhouli Europe Railway Express

  • Yiwu-Xinjiang-Europe  Railway Express

  • Hunan-Europe Railway Express, international railway transportation from Changsha North Station in China to Germany, Hungary and other countries in Europe.

Problems with China Railway Express  

1. The track standards of railways in different countries are different. The railway tracks in China and Europe are the same, but not in Russia. But the railways all need to pass through Russia, so the train needs to change the container when it arrives in Russia, and the Russian train also needs to change the container when it arrives in Europe. This virtually increases the cost of rail transport.

2. The problem of railway technology, railway technology can not keep up with the rapid growth of international railway transport demand. For example, it takes about 15 days for the entire transportation of a refrigerator, and a full tank of oil can support refrigeration throughout the entire journey. It will take longer to meet the customs inspection in the middle of transportation, which cannot guarantee the whole process of refrigeration. If the product is not refrigerated throughout the process, it is easy to spoil. cause huge losses.

3. Issues with documents. The international railways of various countries do not have a unified bill of lading like international ocean freight. Therefore, the bill of lading issued by China Railway cannot be directly used to pick up the cabinet at the European destination.

4. Stability issues, temporarily unable to reach the weekly fixed train

5. The problem of freight volume, many trains from China to Europe can be fully loaded with goods, but the return journey from Europe to China has no source of goods.

6. European railway loading and unloading problems. International transit railway stations, especially Maraszevic in Europe, do not have enough loading and unloading capacity, resulting in the inability to unload the train at the designated station, and often have to wait in line for several days or longer
