Railway Freight


Railway transportation is a mode of transportation that has a shorter shipping time and is cheaper than air transportation.

Railway transportation is flexible, and railway trains can be sent to major cities in China. For example, if goods are in Changsha, mainland China, there is no need to travel 900 kilometers to Yantian Port in Shenzhen for sea transportation. Save inland transportation costs.

We mainly refer to Central Asia and Central Europe railway transportation. Because Central Asian countries are landlocked cities, most freight transportation relies on railway transportation. Since 2011, China has successively opened line transportation between major European countries and major cities in China, contributing to the development of One Belt and One Road.

Blue Dolphin has a good cooperative relationship with China Railway Corporation. We can help your goods be transported by rail from various cities in China, to various countries in Central Asia, and to major cities in Europe. Through our agent network in Central Asia and Europe, we can arrange for your goods to be delivered to you.


Advantages of railway transport:

  1. Reliable transport time with fixed schedules and daily departures
  2. Two times faster than sea freight and cheaper than air freight thanks to the pricing stability
  3. Safe and secure transit, GPS tracking capability
  4. Quicker customs procedure than air and sea freight
  5. Transparent price with low volatility
  6. No limit on the amount of the goods and height clearance up to 2.7 meters
  7. Low carbon footprint with transportation mainly on electrified rail lines and not contribute to water pollution
