Thanks to the scale of the railway networks and the necessity of connection with distant territories such as China or Mongolia, the railway becomes a very attractive solution when choosing the optimal method of transport. Historically most freight has been shipped via sea. But with transit times pushing under 3 weeks and over 10 times cheaper than via air, rail is fast becoming a viable alternative.
We provide our clients with the following services:
Rail also allows for a far more ecological alternative to sea with reductions in Co2 nearly 5 times less than sea transportation.
With options for the collection of cargo in Asia or in the EU, we offer not only the transportation, but also the possibilities to collect either the goods and pack the container or to transport the full container ready for reloading from one mode to another.
Groupage and LTL / LCL is something EGT have offered to our clients for over 20 years. When using this option, we consolidate the cargo, which allows clients who do not have enough goods to fill the entire container, to still use the railway.
