For this reason, we also offer Premium solutions, addressed to customers for whom time is money.

THE RAILWAY IS CHEAPER WITH US
As our experience shows, railway transport can be realized not only almost twice as fast as sea transport, but it can also generate significantly Lower costs, particularly door-to-door formula. This is determined by, for example, the costs of transport around China or the amount of handling fees, which in the case of railways are often simply lower. In the era of a rapidly changing market, these small, but extremely important issues may go unnoticed, and have a significant impact on the final price of the delivery. In our company, we monitor the market on an ongoing basis and look for the most optimal solutions for you.
Before the launch of the Railway Silk Road, the vast majority of European importers of Chinese goods made purchases of goods on the FOB port terms. In this way, the exporter sold the goods along with the freight to the port, earning handsomely on organizing transport around China. The importer could arrange the transport himself, but in the end it became unprofitable. FOB port terms were the obvious choice to cooperate with Chinese exporters.
Development Railway Silk Road allowed us to implement completely new solutions in the field of imports from China. We encourage all our clients to fully control their supply chain and thus rail transport they are mostly implemented on EXW factory / warehouse basis. By implementing the service of collecting goods directly from the warehouse, we reduce the costs of transport margins calculated by the exporter. The exporter has no knowledge about many new railway solutions existing on the market, and the professional forwarder we are constantly monitors the market and selects the best solutions at the moment of ordering the shipment.
Just look at the map of how many cargo terminals there are in China, and it becomes clear that the factories in the hinterland are closer to the railway terminals than to the ports. Only specialists know that the nearest railway terminal is not always the cheapest solution. Sometimes it is worth sending the goods to a further terminal so that the total door-to-door freight is significantly cheaper. A properly conducted freight valuation process by a specialist results in very attractive rates for rail freight. Railway cargo from China may be cheaper than general cargo, which we often show at conferences as market educators.
Introducing new solutions in the field of transport services to the market is always associated with the need to convince customers of their higher efficiency and profitability in relation to the solutions used so far. Currently, after several years of experience in the organization transport of products by express rail trains and related multimodal services, we can guarantee not only much faster, than by sea, the transportation of goods, but also ensure that it is more than once cheaperthan that carried out by container ships.
