International rail freight transportation
For a few years, APR has been offering a rail service that links China to Europe on a weekly basis. This service is noted for its lower transit time than sea transport and lower cost than air transport.
By means of this service, we can reduce transit times while optimising stock volumes and restocking speeds and even obtaining further reliability and better predictions on the good’s estimated arrival dates.
This service is especially suitable for high added-value goods or for those that are transported to central Europe as the final destination.
Exclusive network of agents in Asia and Europe
We have a wide network of representatives in Europe and Asia with extensive experience in this means of transport and deconsolidation and fulfilment warehouses in several countries. This makes it easier for us to transport goods by rail from China to any of our agent’s terminals and from there, reship them by lorry to Spain or to the Member State of final destination.
Thanks to this network, we can offer you specific services, such as the following:
- Buyers consolidation
- Quality assurance
- Intermodal shipping
- Volumes, packaging, labelling and a long list of options that we have to offer based on our customers needs.
