China to Germany Railway Freight

The rapid development of China container railway freight from China to Germany originated from Xi Jinping's "One Belt and One Road" and "China Railway Express". Since the first container railway freight train from Chongqing to Germany in 2013, more than 10 cities in China have provided container railway freight services to Germany in 2018, with an average of more than 10 trains per day.

China to German container railway freight accounts for more than 50% of the transportation of goods in the “China Railway Express”. The types of container include: standard containers 20GP 40GP 40 HQ, open top container, hanging closet container, refrigerated container and many other types.

Since the country has proposed the development of the Belt and Road . International railway freight is the main force connecting the "New Silk Road". German railway freight is developed. There is Hamburg station in the north of the German railway , and trains in Hamburg station connect its neighboring countries such as Poland, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Denmark. In the south there is the Munich train station in Germany, connecting countries such as France, Italy, Austria, Switzerland and other Western European countries.

Germany's logistics industry is developed, whether it is international railway freight, international sea freight, or truck freight. It can be said that the selection of the German railway station for the loading and unloading place of China to Germany railway freight is the best choice for China Railway Express to the European market. When the container railway reaches the German train station, the highly developed German truck freight can quickly load and unload cargo and transport it to neighboring countries

At the same time, the goods collected from the German railway station are transported back to China, such as German cars, Italian clothing, German beer, French wine, cosmetics, Swiss confectionery and so on. Thereby ensuring the traffic volume of the China Railway Express.
