Door-to-door deliveries

Rail transport is cheaper than air freight and faster than sea transport. Rail transport to China only takes 12–16 days, while the same journey by sea takes 45–60 days.

If you wish, we can also take care of the feeder traffic and door-to-door transport for you. From Hefei, for example, your cargo will reach all the main ports in China in just three days.

Smooth and secure

We offer you comprehensive service from packaging to warehousing as well as forwarding to transit services. You should make a booking for the train in good time, but you can deliver the cargo to the trains departing from Finland until Monday of the departure week and to the trains departing from China until Wednesday of the departure week.

Once the train is loaded, the containers travel uninterrupted and intact all the way except for the Kazakhstan-China border, where the track gauge changes.

Thanks to a real-time tracking system, you can reliably track your shipment and train progress throughout the journey.

Reliable temperature-controlled transport

We also provide unique temperature-controlled rail transport from Helsinki and from Narvik via Helsinki to Hefei and Chongqing.

In addition to food, the containers can carry all products that require temperature-controlled conditions, such as chemicals or medicines. The train can carry 45′ reefer containers and the temperature can be adjusted between -25 and +25 degrees as needed.

A real-time monitoring system enables reliable temperature monitoring throughout the journey.

Environmentally friendly

Rail freight is an environmentally friendly mode of transport. The CO2 emissions of rail transport are up to 90% lower than those of air freight.
