Ceva launches BRI block train

Ceva Logistics North Asia has launched a block train service from China to Europe as the company looks to tap into the potential of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

In cooperation with Xiamen International Railway Service (XMIRS), the block train connected Duisburg, Germany to Xiamen in the southeast mainland of China. Ceva added that, utilising both sea and rail links, the service can connect Europe with Asian countries, using Xiamen as a transhipment hub.

“Depending on the origin cities in Asia, it will take 16-17 days at a minimum to reach the destination in Europe via Xiamen. More block trains will be operated as demand grows,” said David Wu, general manager at XMIRS.

“I am convinced that the countries and cities along the BRI will benefit from the advantage of this seamless transportation mode, which in turn will attract more domestic and foreign enterprises’ attention to Xiamen.”
