BY RAIL FASTER THAN BY SHIP
How long does the train from China to Poland take? Rail freight is much faster than sea freight. The route between the Xi'an terminal in China and the railway terminal in Małaszewicze in Poland is covered by express freight trains in 9-14 days. As a result, the entire supply chain from pick-up from the factory in China to the recipient in the European Union is closed within 22-27 days for full rail containers (FCL) and 25-28 days for groupage shipments (LCL). Importantly, now the transport can be ordered for the next week, which means that the transport of goods is carried out extremely quickly. For comparison, sea freight from China to Poland takes about 50-60 days. By choosing the China-Poland train as part of the New Silk Road, you gain twice as fast delivery of goods and a chance to maintain the continuity of the supply chain, which is so important nowadays!
The time of transport from China to the terminal in Małaszewicze depends on three main aspects: the first is the place of receipt of goods in China, the second - the location of the railway terminal (the nearest terminal is not always the best / cheapest), and the third is the choice of the route on the train. The appropriate combination of these three factors determines the selection of the optimal railway service not only in terms of time, but also costs.

The carriage of goods by rail is one of the safest ways to transport cargo. In addition to minimizing the risk of accidents, the New Silk Road runs through areas free from hostilities. Importantly, the war in Ukraine does not affect the functioning of the Railway Silk Road. Its main branch runs through Kazakhstan, Russia and Belarus, so it is not threatened with hostilities and with the suspension of transports. Moreover, the carrier bears full liability for the third party liability insurance (up to the full value of the gross cargo) on the way. Remember, however, that third party liability insurance is intended to protect the carrier, not property, and only if the carrier is fully responsible for damage or destruction of property. The CARGO policy is responsible for the protection of property / goods, which covers many risks such as:
- natural disaster (fire, hurricane, avalanche, earthquake, landslide)
- robbery or theft (of both property and means of transport along with property)
- damage to the cargo, as well as in the event of accidents of the means of transport.
Importantly, Cargo insurance is very cheap in relation to the risk it covers.
