How long is the transit time of the European rail line?How long is the transit time of the European rail line? What are the shipping methods and what are their pros and cons?
The European railway line is a popular mode of transportation now, mainly relying on the China Railway Express to transport to European countries through designated routes. The cost is lower than that of air freight, and the timeliness is faster than that of sea freight. For some people who need to transport goods to Europe for a long time, it is a very cost-effective transportation method. There are also many freight forwarders on European railway lines. How long does it take? Which one is better? What are the advantages and disadvantages?
How many days does the European Rail Transit Line expire?
Rail transit time: it takes 15-20 days
Delivery time: about 3-5 days.
For shipping to different European countries, the time is also different, and the specific logistics company shall prevail.
1. LTL transportation
For some goods whose volume is relatively small and is not enough to meet the standard of vehicle transportation, LTL transportation is used, and it is necessary to share a vehicle for transportation with other goods of the same destination and nature. For some routes, transit is required. There are also regulations on the volume and quantity of goods, and you should consult the logistics company for details.
2. Vehicle transportation
Vehicle transportation usually means that the amount of goods to be transported must reach the standard of the whole vehicle before it can be loaded and transported, usually one ticket per vehicle. It supports direct transportation to some European countries, there are not too many other links on the way, the safety is relatively high, and the aging time is relatively faster.
Advantages of European Rail Lines：
1. High cost performance
The European Rail Express Line provides freight logistics services for cross-border e-commerce sellers. It has the advantages of stable timeliness, high efficiency, and low tariffs. It is currently a relatively cost-effective logistics method in cross-border logistics.
In terms of logistics timeliness, it is much higher than European shipping logistics. The freight efficiency is high, the China-Europe railway goes directly to Europe, the goods are quickly picked up for terminal delivery, and the overall time limit for receipt is about 19-25 days. The tariff is low, and it is a type of freight method whose receiving price is only higher than that of sea freight. The overall tariff is between 9 yuan/kg-18 yuan/kg.
2. Good stability
One of the core competitiveness of railway transportation is stability. Railway transportation has its own unique transportation system and transportation route, which is less affected by other transportation methods, natural environment and other factors. The goods can arrive at the destination on time and smoothly.
3. High security
Relying on the characteristics of strong continuity, the railway transportation mode has less cargo transfer, and the loss rate, damage rate and loss rate are relatively low, and the freight security is relatively high. In addition, the probability of accidents in railway transportation is much lower than that in sea and air transportation, and accidents can be handled more easily, and the overall freight safety factor is relatively high.
4. Small delivery restrictions
The delivery restrictions of rail goods are relatively small, on the one hand in the weight and size of the goods, and on the other hand in the type of the goods. In terms of item weight, it can accept items weighing 100kg and above. In terms of item size, items with the sum of length, width and height within 300 cm can be delivered. In terms of item types, it supports the delivery of built-in batteries, supporting batteries, liquid items, cosmetics, paste items, adult products, kitchen knives and other items.
1. The logistics timeliness is slow
For cross-border e-commerce sellers, the logistics timeliness of rail transport cannot meet the timeliness needs of most sellers, especially self-delivery sellers. The 20-day time limit of rail transportation may greatly increase the probability of consumers canceling orders, and the hidden operational risks are huge.
2. The scope of mail is small
The scope of rail transportation is relatively small, mainly in European countries, and some European countries and other countries cannot be delivered, and there are great restrictions. If the seller wants to deliver the goods to Russia, the United States, Brazil, Australia, Japan and other countries, they can only choose air, sea and other logistics methods.
The above is the entire content of "Introduction to the Timeliness, Modes of Transportation, and Advantages and Disadvantages of European Railway Special Lines". Through the introduction of this article, I believe that everyone has a more comprehensive understanding of the European railway special line channels. In the future, when choosing a European special line, there will be a good plan.
