At the moment, road transport across continents is an attractive alternative to air freight

When COVID-19 closed borders and grounded more than 90% of passenger airplanes, air cargo capacity was slashed and prices on the remaining capacity soared.

Transit time for air freight from Shanghai, China to an airport in Western Europe is now around 8 days, last month it was up to 14 days.
With the still unusually high prices for air freight due to capacity constraints, road transport from China to Western Europe in just two and a half weeks is an attractive alternative.

About our China - Europe truck service

China-Europe truck transportation, following transportation by air, sea and railway, is the new mode of transportation that uses large trucks to deliver goods from China to Europe and is also called the fourth cross-border channel. The air transportation in the peak season is not as cost-effective as the transportation by truck, especially during the current pandemic period when the airline business has been globally affected. Many airline companies have to suspend flights, which aggravates the already very limited capacity of air transportation. What’s worse, if the pandemic gets much more serious, the flights will be overbooked and goods in airports will pile up with no end in sight. Compared with transportation by sea and railway, transportation by truck is faster and safer.
