Nippon Express China-Vietnam cross border rail freight service launched


KUALA LUMPUR, March 15 (Bernama): The East Asia Region section of Nippon Express Co Ltd has launched a new cross-border rail freight service from Suzhou, China, to Hanoi, Vietnam using international rail lines connecting both countries.

The service departs Suzhou West Railway Station, located amidst the industrial clusters of eastern China, and travels via Nanning South Railway Station to Yen Vien Railway Station (Hanoi).

According to a statement, the use of rail transport makes possible reliable lead times (eight to 10 days) and this eco-friendly transport service also provides customers with a useful BCP option when faced with ship and truck congestion.

Ocean cargo transport from China to Southeast Asia is currently plagued by shortages of space aboard vessels, and the need to secure a transport route offering reliable lead times led to the development of this new transport service as a BCP initiative.

Nippon Express will be looking to develop rail transport services from Vietnam to China, and will consider transport services that combine rail with other transport modes.

The company will also continue satisfying increasingly diverse logistics needs and fulfilling the commitment to ‘create new ideas and value that expand the field of logistics’ proclaimed in the Nippon Express Group Corporate Philosophy. - Bernama
