SOS risk of supply chain disruptions: the New Silk Road offers the winning solutions

“Grazie a tutto lo staff per l’eccellente prestazione”  (transl. “Thanks to all the staff for the excellent performance“) : customer satisfaction is priceless

The first containers coming by rail transport service from China, “branded Asian Logistics 2024”, were successfully delivered last week.

Our client is an Italian manufacturer of air conditioning machines located near Rome, which usually uses the sea transport service to import various components from China (axial fans for central heating, heat pumps, etc.).

From the beginning of the Red Sea Crisis, goods delivery times increased as sea carriers had to reroute trips  around the southern tip of Africa to avoid Houthi attacks.

With the risk of supply chain disruptions, the importer has decided to contact us as experts in the rail transport from China to Europe. The railway option was the best alternative considering the urgency of receiving the goods.

The containers departed from Wujiashan railway hub, Wuhan, China on January 18th and arrived at Melzo railway Hub, Milan on February 13th.

The importer requested a truck delivery for these first 5×40’HC, final destination his own logistic hub in Rome. Good were delivered on February 15th, “Grazie a tutto lo staff per l’eccellente prestazione”  (transl. “Thanks to all the staff for the excellent performance“) : customer satisfaction is priceless.

A second batch of 5×40’HC departed on February 7th from the railway hub of Xi’an, Shaanxi Province, and is scheduled to arrive on February 27th at the Melzo railway hub, Milan to be then forwarded to the same unloading warehouse.
