Our freight forwarding company has many years of experience in transporting goods from China to Europe. We have a wide network of partners and suppliers in both regions to ensure fast and efficient handling of your shipments.
We offer both air freight and ocean freight to meet the respective needs of our customers. Our air freight options are ideal for urgent shipments, while our ocean freight options are more cost-effective and particularly suitable for transporting larger and heavier goods.
But rail freight is another option for transporting goods from China to Europe. Our rail freight options are particularly cost-effective and offer faster transit time compared to ocean freight. Rail freight is also more environmentally friendly than air freight and also achieves a higher capacity than truck transport.
