Boosting Baltic-China trade
Baltic and Nordic exporters can look forward to faster, cheaper and more reliable logistics connections to China's immense export market, following the signing of a new agreement between Latvian Railways (LDz) and DHL Global Forwarding.
The two companies want to establish multimodal rail connections between China and Latvia, including both freight connections and consolidation services centred in Riga City.
Furthermore, the new connections will include guaranteed transit times and simplified customs and handling procedures, as well as support for more flexible shipments such as less-than-container load (LCL) freight. (ben)
