DB Schenker moves China’s first fresh produce block train to Moscow

DB Schenker, one of the leading global logistics service providers, operates the first block train with shipment of 11 refrigerator containers carrying fresh produce, departing from Chengdu Qingbaijiang International Railway Port. The 9,000 to 10,000 kilometers journey will take 16 days, run through Erenhot port in Inner Mongolia and arrive at Moscow Vorsino Railway Station.

DB Schenker is the first Global 3PL in China operating the block train freight of perishable agricultural products for Rollink, which is a leading China-based B2B food trading company.  DB Schenker’s first cooperation with Rollink started in early 2017, when DB Schenker successfully managed several air freight export shipment of fresh fruits from China to Russia.  The business scope then extended to other trade lanes including Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand.

The goods of 160 tons fresh vegetable will be ready to sell to customers shortly after arriving Moscow. DB Schenker takes care of the rail freight services from Chengdu to Moscow and also the custom clearance in the destination as well as local distribution service in Moscow from port to door, ensuring the optimal conditions for the cargo through seamless temperature control throughout the journey.
