In response to increased demand in China, the international logistics provider has recently started offering FTL road transport via the Middle Corridor, as a supplement to the existing rail transport services on the Iron Silk Road. The company currently offers trucking services via the Caspian Sea with transit times of 22-25 days. The first transport, a temperature-controlled shipment of lithium batteries for an automotive customer, was completed in early July.
Overland transport via the Middle Corridor of the New Silk Road has recently become an increasingly viable alternative to air, sea freight and rail transport. Following a growing number of customer inquiries, cargo-partner has now added this new transport option via Kazakhstan, the Caspian Sea, the Caucasus and Türkiye to its regular service portfolio and offers it as a complementary solution to other transport modes.
cargo-partner’s road transport team in China offers a tailor-made concept with continuous tracking along the entire route. By closely monitoring the changing local circumstances, cargo-partner’s expert team can flexibly select the most favorable route and border crossing for each individual shipment. Transit times vary depending on the origin and destination points and currently average 22 to 25 days. At the moment, the service is only available for full truck loads.
In addition to the competitive transit times, the new transport option has the advantage of being able to move goods that cannot be shipped by air or rail. To date, the service has been requested by customers in the electronics, e-commerce and automotive sectors. Thanks to its dense network in China and Europe, cargo-partner can offer comprehensive door-to-door solutions from a single source, which helps to reduce transit times and avoid delays in unloading and reloading.
cargo-partner’s first transport via the Middle Corridor took place from mid-June to early July and consisted of a temperature-controlled shipment of lithium batteries for a German-based automotive customer. As the batteries were declared as dangerous goods, cargo-partner took care of all customs formalities and handled the required certificates and documentation. In addition, the logistics provider constantly monitored not only the transport process, but also of the temperature of the cargo.
