COSCO Shipping has launched a Special Train for Hisense Home Appliances loaded with Hisense electrical products slowly departed from Jimo Port Station.
The goods will be loaded on board a containership under COSCO Shipping Lines to Europe and South America after arriving at Huangdao Port Station.
All the Hisense home appliance products were previously shipped to overseas markets by liners after being transported to the ports by road and loaded onboard for shipping. However, the huge volume of shipments and heavy traffic at the ports often cause congestions that seriously affect the efficiency of cargo collection.
COSCO Shipping Lines Qingdao were then commissioned to communicate with the customer about the details of the transportation plan and advance the rolling-out of the intermodal transport business.
The new business combines road, rail and marine transportation and it has been highly recognized by Hisense after the test operation. The train makes two round trips per week.
On 8 February 2022, PTI will be holding its Intermodal Freight Forum Europe delving into the pressing challenges and trends in intermodal freight transport. The event is set to bring together senior decision-makers from the intermodal transport network, addressing a wide range of issues from data standardisation to the lack of capacity in ports and rail.
Registration for the event can be done here.
