The New Silk Road | White Paper

The New Silk Road freight train, the revival of the ancient Silk Road, the overland route of 11 000 kilometers connecting China and Europe, offers an alternative to air and sea freight. Shipping products on a freight train from the ‘East to the West’ is gaining popularity for cargo for which optimised transit time is critical but delivery needs are not urgent enough to justify the high costs of air transport. Transporting cargo using the New Silk Road freight train between China and Europe appeals especially to customers who have time-sensitive goods or capital-intensive goods.
