GEODIS Rail Solution China – Europe

Last update

December 2020 updates

Note: Valid until 30th December 2020, *terminal-Terminal,**Subject to space availability and changes


Starting from the 8th December 2020, all westbound trains from China to Europe have been suspended due to the border congestion.  The situation will continue until further notice. The eastbound rail route from Europe to China is running as usual but we expect certain delays in the railway stretch from the CIS and Chinese border crossing.
 
Space on the westbound service at present is extremely tight, shipments are being accepted based on firm bookings depending on the availability of space and equipment on the date of departure. Due to extremely strong demand for space on the westbound service, we request all potential bookings to be checked with us case by case.
 
On the eastbound service, capacity is relatively sufficient despite price changes from time to time, therefore early booking is recommended in order that a competitive price can be offered and space on the train of desired departure can be secured.
GEODIS is closely monitoring the situation and will keep you updated once there is a change in the current situation.
