New freight train route launched between Hefei, China and Helsinki, Finland

Freight railway services between China and Finland took leap forward in October when the first train on the new route started its journey from Helsinki. With the transit time of only 14 days, the new connection offers efficient transportation solutions for companies operating on import or export business between China and Northern Europe.

Traffic started in autumn with four trains from both Helsinki and Hefei, but from the beginning of 2019, the route is operated on a more regular basis in both directions. Hefei’s location in the central part of Anhui province allows reaching the main coastal cities of China within 72 hours. The fast transit time might be even more beneficial for companies who have their outbound or inbound destination in the inland of China.

Don’t hesitate to ask us more about the various benefits of the new rail freight connection. We will be delighted to help you in finding the best possible solution for your needs.
