Rail freight is increasingly popular - especially for transport between China and Europe

Rail offers a fast, safe and reliable transport alternative to air and sea freight

Sending a container by rail instead of ship from China reduces the transit time from months to just weeks. There are daily departures from several cities in northern and eastern China, as well as several neighbouring countries including Vietnam and South Korea. Most locations in western and northern Europe and Russia are served by a guaranteed weekly general cargo container service from China. 

What about security & insurance for rail freight shipments?

Extensive security measures, such as anti-theft equipment and container locks, and close monitoring ensure smooth and safe transport. And DSV Insurance, our in-house insurance company, can offer tailor-made insurance solutions.
