Train from China to Europe

In Week 47 (14th,Nov.-20th, Nov.), train from China to Europe and Asia operates generally well. The transit time of Europe-bound rail services shortened respectively, trains dispatched from major stations like Xian, Chengdu, Chongqing, Yiwu, and others took about 12 days to arrive at Malaszewicze, and to Duisburg and Hamburg about 18-22 days. While the T/T from Chengdu, Xi'an, Ganzhou, Hefei, Yiwu, and Zengcheng (Guangzhou) to Moscow on the Russian-bound lines was about 15-20 days. The service from Guiyang to Moscow stood out with a T/T stabled at 14 days as always Markets are pouring into the full-time recorded rail services at Xian as the charted trains were dispatched every Wednesday. Shortly, some terminals overseas may be congested according to some industry insiders, which may increase the number of in-transit trains and delays at ports to varying degrees. It is expected that the train from China to Europe and Asia may suffer from unstable shipment and timeliness subsequently.

This week, the strong demand and the limited spaces pushed up the spot freight rate at Russian-bound routes. Platform companies in Chengdu, Chongqing, Guiyang, Xiamen, and Zengcheng have successively released their latest quotation in December, showing a growing price with a rise of 300-500 dollars compared with the previous ones. Due to the increasing volume of exported cargo and the limited volume of imported cargo, a large number of containers are stranded in different yards in Russia. At present, there is a shortage of Russia-bound containers, and the leasing price has increased by 20%.

Trucking from cities in eastern China like Shanghai and Ningbo has not changed significantly compared with last week, but it declined slightly from places in North China. Affected by the epidemic, it takes 3-4 days to load containers in domestic factories in Southern China, compared with 1-2 days previously; Passes are required to enter and exit Qingbaijiang at Chengdu and the time for loading may be extended as well.
