What could be an alternative for rail transport from Asia?
Until now, the most popular alternative to rail transport has been sea transport. Unfortunately, nowadays ships from China can even arrive at ports in Europe with a delay of more than 40 days, which significantly increases the price of this type of transport. In our opinion, rail transport is currently the most favourable mode of transport in terms of price/shipping time ratio.
