China – Northern Europe Railway Connection
China – Northern Europe Railway Connection

Reach your market in 18 days

Nurminen Logistics carries your cargo between Finland and China in just 18 days. The regular railway connection runs between Hefei and Helsinki every second week, reliably delivering your goods eastbound or westbound.

From your perspective, the train connection operates on the same principle as sea or air freight. Our crew will take care of all the details for you. The train runs once in two weeks in both directions.

Our service covers all stages of transportation, from door to door. We will assist you in forwarding, storage and packing, if needed. You can easily get the containers in Finland and China, and return them to any of receiving points.

Hefei is located in just 72 hours from key port cities on the Chinese coast, such as Ningbo. If the place of departure or destination of your cargo is inland China, you will save on feeder costs and the benefits of shorter transport time. 

Regular feed traffic from Helsinki will collect or transport your cargo to Scandinavia or to your desired destination in Europe.

Contact us today to learn more about the immediate benefits of the 18-day rail connection.

The service is especially suitable for:

  • Batches with medium or high value
  • Items which require or benefit from a short time-to-market
  • Products sensitive to arrival time
  • Companies benefitting from a regular service and guaranteed railway transportation quota
  • Forwarders looking for fast transport routes for their customers
  • Companies aiming at Chinese inland locations
  • Goods vulnerable to sea transport conditions
  • Companies looking at options for air freight
