Rail logistics, the future ‘green’ logistics channel

In July 2019, the Russian ministry of Transport announced the lift of several banned goods passing through Russia. For years, the ban had great impact on rail freight traffic between Europe and Asia as commodities such as raw material and foodstuff were not allowed. With the ban lifted, great new opportunities presented themselves.

KLG-ITM actively pursues the intercontinental rail initiative as a third logistics modality. In cooperation with our rail partner, New Silk Way logistics, we take a pioneering position in the exploration of this new endeavor. NSWL was created as a joint venture between the logistic giants KLG Europe and H.S. Essers and has been the specialist on rail transport for the past decade. Whatever the cargo, the KLG-NSWL partnership ensures high-quality and reliable logistics via the rail option.

Project rail

Without the Russian embargo, our rail project is developing rapidly. With a transit time of 20 days and the ability to transport a wide array of goods against cost-efficient rates, it has become a lucrative transport modality for many different businesses. Using the extensive KLG network, we can provide door-to-door delivery from anywhere in China to Europe and vice versa. Managed and arranged from the KLG-ITM office in China, the rail option has exceeded every expectation, as Chinese and European cities become evermore connected.

Ordinary logistics channels have an overall heavy burden on the environment as the ocean modality contributes to the pollution of the seas while air channel emits large quantities of CO2 emissions. The rail optionboth reducesthe carbon footprint and prevents environmental pollution.KLG-ITM joins the green movementwithin the logistics sector and strives for Green modes of transportation. The intercontinental rail option is a crucial part of the KLG-ITM arsenal in this transformation.
