China: rail service to Wuhan launched
The ongoing novel coronavirus outbreak has led to numerous restrictions being placed on shipments to Wuhan (China), with shipments by truck becoming particularly difficult.
Nippon Express has established a service to resolve the issue of transporting cargo to Wuhan by securing a rail transport route. The Japanese transport company will provide dependable railfreight services in collaboration with Chinese forwarder Sinotrans.
Rail transport will allow Nippon Express to offer bulk transport, on-time operation, and reliable lead times. FCL (full container load) will be ferried daily to the Wujiashan freight terminal in Wuhan and LCL (less than container load) weekly to the Sinotrans warehouse in the Caidian economic development district.
