    Eurasia SeaRail Shipment for Unilever

    Elevating Supply Chain Efficiency: Our First Eurasia SeaRail Shipment

    In a significant stride toward optimized logistics, we are thrilled to share the successful transportation of consumer goods from Indonesia to Kazakhstan for Unilever using our innovative Eurasia SeaRail logistics solution. This shipment marks the debut of our multimodal approach, integrating sea and rail routes to facilitate smoother and faster deliveries.

    This milestone was achieved in November 2023, following an extensive engagement that commenced back in January 2023. It was a joint effort orchestrated by the DB SCHENKER Ocean Team in Indonesia and our Rail Team in China.

    The shipment required a specialized loading method. The goods were strategically loaded to ensure even weight distribution within the container. The shipment demanded meticulous attention during the trial phase, necessitating GPS installation guidance from DB SCHENKER to Unilever’s warehouse team. The proposed model promises a reduced transit time of 7 weeks to Almaty, Kazakhstan.

    Benefits of the SeaRail Solution 

    This multimodal approach has enhanced supply chain lead times to Central Asia. The transition from sea to rail has been smooth, streamlining both documentation and operational facets. Importantly, this solution stands to benefit other sourcing countries of Unilever, particularly exporting nations in APAC, notably the Philippines.

    This achievement underscores our commitment to innovative solutions that drive efficiency in global logistics. As we continue to explore new avenues and refine existing strategies, we remain dedicated to optimizing seamless transportation experiences for our partners.
