International rail shipments: the advantage of choosing our services.

The constant growth in demand in the shipping industry has created new needs in terms of speed and distances to be covered. Avion has, therefore, expanded its operational scope to the import and export services via rail, in order to connect specific industrial markets with each other.

In particular, on the Europe-China route, we believe that the rail cargo solution is an efficient response to the increase in traffic between these two regions.

Opting for the Rail Service, whenever the volume of goods allows for it, offers clear advantages to our customers:

  • Halving of transport times compared to sea freight forwarding
  • Significant cost saving compared to air freight forwarding
  • Simplified border crossings
  • Intermodal transport (integration of rail and road transport for the first and last mile)

The added value of rail shipping also translates into environmental sustainability, thanks to a decrease in CO2 emissions compared to air and sea transport.
