China to Italy Railway Freight

The history of Italian railways has been around for more than 100 years. The first railway built in Italy was from Naples to Portage. Built in 1839, the total length was only 7.64 kilometers. But soon the Milan-Monza Railway was built in 1840, and then the Milan-Venice Railway was built in 1842. In a short decade, it is the fastest development of Italian railways. These newly built railways were mostly used for passenger transportation and did not transport goods.

Up to now, Italy has built passenger and freight railways, and the railway network is very perfect. The company that manages the Italian railway is the Italian National Railways Group (FS Group). The subsidiaries below this company are in charge of the railway infrastructure and passenger trains, freight trains.

China to Italy Railway Freight is the cooperation between the China Railway Corporation and the Italian Railways. The Trenitalia company under the FS has cooperated to complete the transportation, loading and unloading, customs clearance, trucks and train station services.

It has a total length of 10,800 kilometers and takes about 17-19 days.

Compared with sea freight, this Sino-Italian railway freight line can save two-thirds of the time. It will not only transport Chinese products to Italy quickly, but also transport Italian products to the Chinese market by rail. Previously, international long-distance railway freight between China and Italy required a one-and-a-half-month, which was close to transit time of sae freight. Due to the long time of railway freight, but the freight is higher than that of international sea freight, most of the products between the two countries are still transported by international sea freight. After the opening of this special line, more and more goods were transported by railway freight to Italy.

Passing through Poland, Germany and then to Milan, Italy, If by international railway FCL freight, the goods can be transported directly to the Italian train station without re-loading. If by the international railway LCL freight, it may be removed at the German train station and then delivered to Italy by truck.
