What It Is

The China-Europe Rail is a unique multimodal cross-border rail-sea end-to-end service linking Northeast Asia and Southeast Asia with Europe. It is a more reliable, eco-friendly and cost-efficient alternative as compared to air freight or the “all-sea” route, especially during times of supply chain disruptions.

From first-mile pick-up from a factory or warehouse anywhere in China, to rail freight from China to Europe, and last-mile delivery in Europe, PSA Cargo Solutions can be your single point of contact to help you achieve end-to-end supply chain orchestration. We can also provide sea freight from South Korea, Japan and Southeast Asia, as well as trucking from Vietnam to China for cross-border China Railway (CR) Express service to Europe. End-to-end freight bookings and management can be managed via PSA’s digital supply chain platform, CALISTA.

We can also provide a wide range of value-added services including warehousing & distribution, trade financing, e-Commerce logistics, Less-than Container Load (LCL) services, cargo consolidation and cold chain transportation using reefers.

To help you achieve a smoother cargo flow, you can also request priority handling of your time-critical cargo at selected PSA-operated railway terminals and ports.

With PSA Cargo Solutions as your single provider, you can rest easy knowing that you have a dedicated logistics service provider who is always on top of things.
