Euroconsol Announces Direct Service from China to Poland
Euroconsol, a neutral global NVOCC and freight consolidator, has announced a new, direct less than container load and full container load Silk Road import rail service from Chengdu, China, to Pruszkow, Poland.
On-carriage is offered from the Pruszkow, Poland hub to Hamburg and Rotterdam, a two-day transit. Additional on-forwarding will be offered to Praha, Vienna, Helsinki, and Budapest in the near future.
The service connects to all major cities in China via transshipment. An eastbound Poland-to-Chengdu service will be available in September from Euroconsol. A significant benefit of rail compared to ocean transport is speed. The rail route from Southwest China to Poland is 15 days shorter.

We anticipate this service growing in popularity due to the speed with which it reaches European markets. In addition, it bypasses the congestion at some European port locations.”
