RCG expands into China
BB Rail Cargo Group (RCG) will have a subsidiary in Shanghai starting in January 2023. RCG matches its customers’ needs even more closely with this investment in the Middle Kingdom, and there are plenty of compelling reasons why this collaboration should succeed.
From the start, customers will benefit from RCG’s entry into the Chinese city of Shanghai because RCG employees on site will significantly improve the management of the entire logistics value chain, including additional freight forwarding services. This is true for trucking, customs clearance, transshipment, and transportation solutions that use either the standard 40-foot container or the 40-foot high-cube container, which is 30 cm taller.
With its competitive transit times, RCG can provide solid and dependable alternatives to sea and air freight. It also allows customers to avoid the loading and unloading ports, which are still highly congested, and the inland terminals. This increased flexibility provides the impetus that differentiates supply chains.
A new direction for TransNET
Customers benefit from attractive routes from China to Europe and back and easy access to Korea and Japan via short sea crossings, thanks to the link to the TransNET, which already has over 800 connections.
The Middle Corridor, in addition to the North Corridor, is available for future-proof goods transport. This trade route connects Kazakhstan to Romania and Central Europe via Azerbaijan/Georgia and the Black Sea. It provides greater planning security, even in the face of geopolitical crises.
