DHL launches China-Europe rail reefers

,

DHL Global Forwarding has launched a temperature-controlled rail service between China and Europe, in partnership with YHF Logistics.

YHF operates the rail service that runs between China’s West corridor, the Chengdu Express Train.

The new service aims to provide an all-year round multi-modal shipping solution, for temperature sensitive products that were previously unable to travel across the trans-continental West rail corridor during harsh winter, and hot summer months.

All containers on the service have been fitted with a track and trace system, to enable customers to not only know their shipment’s precise location, but to check and modify internal temperatures during the route.
