DHL adds another China-Europe rail link

The route takes 12 days and also covers new overland connections to several major cities along China’s “Belt and Road” network that aims to re-establish the old silk road trade route.

DHL will manage the new route together with China Brilliant, an integrated service provider in global manufacturing and consumption.

The service will offer both Less-than-Container Load (LCL) and Full Container Load (FCL) services along the route and will target electronics, industrial and automotive parts, and fresh food in both eastern Europe and China.

"Eastern Europe's economies are growing faster than almost any others worldwide, with significant export opportunities arising from the region's rising wages and disposable income levels," said Steve Huang, chief executive, DHL Global Forwarding Greater China.

"Minsk offers Chinese businesses an efficient gateway into the Baltic States and Nordic countries in addition to other major European destinations like Warsaw, Hamburg and Tilburg via Brest."
