cargo-partner Expands Direct LCL Services between Asia and Europe

cargo-partner offers 89 weekly departures in direct LCL consolidation service – five of these via the Trans-Siberian route – and has recently expanded its service offering in both seafreight and rail transport.

International transport and info-logistics provider cargo-partner has been active in seafreight for more than three decades. The company currently offers 89 weekly connections for direct LCL transports in sea and rail transport and is constantly expanding its portfolio. Thanks to direct transport without transshipment, cargo-partner’s direct LCL service enables fast transit times and helps avoid the risks of transshipment.

Sea Cargo: New LCL Connection from Nhava Sheva to Gdynia

In seafreight consolidation service, cargo-partner has expanded its product range by a connection from Nhava Sheva in India to Gdynia in Poland. Nhava Sheva, just under two hours from Mumbai, is the largest sea port in the country and an important hub for exports from the Indian Subcontinent. With the new LCL service from Nhava Sheva to Gdynia, cargo-partner can deliver to any country in Europe.

The existing sea cargo services from Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Xiamen, Shanghai, Ningbo, Qingdao and Singapore – the latter serving as a hub for Southeast Asia – are enjoying great popularity. These are complemented by routing options via the Adriatic ports of Koper and Rijeka as well as the northern ports of Hamburg and Rotterdam. In addition, cargo-partner has registered a growing demand for its LCL services from Qingdao, Busan and Tokyo, which the logistics provider accommodates with weekly departures.

In addition, cargo-partner provides extensive coverage in Taiwan, from where the company offers regular LCL transports to Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia and Hungary via Koper as well as to Austria and the Czech Republic via Hamburg. Poland is served via Gdynia, and Romania is routed via Constanța. Depending on each customer’s requirements, transports can be booked in the service levels ECONOMY or PRIORITY.

Rail Transport: New LCL Connection from Tianjin to Warsaw

cargo-partner is among the pioneers on the Trans-Siberian route and has been providing container transports via the Silk Road for half a decade. In addition to the existing connections via rail from Shanghai and Shenzhen, cargo-partner has recently introduced a consolidation service from the North China region to Warsaw, with consolidation in Tianjin and distribution to anywhere in Europe.

Rail transport from Shanghai to Warsaw takes an average of 14-16 days from terminal to terminal, with total transit time including manipulation at terminals amounting to 21 days. From Shenzhen to Warsaw, rail transport takes an average of 19 days from terminal to terminal, and total transit times amount to approximately 24 days. From these main terminals, cargo-partner manages weekly transports with volumes of approximately ten 40’ high cube containers to Warsaw.

First Direct LCL Services 25 Years ago

In the past few years, demand has been rising for the seafreight service from New York to Bremerhaven where cargo-partner offers transports with port-to-port transit times of 12 days. In fact, New York was the port from which cargo-partner offered its first direct LCL service. The customer was an American wholesale chain for which the logistics provider organized a regular consol transport from New York to the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Today, cargo-partner offers weekly departures from the 20 most important terminals in the USA via Bremerhaven to Vienna with distribution in Central Europe.

cargo-partner counts companies from various industries among its customers, including well-known names such as Austrian circuit board manufacturer AT&S, Hungarian lighting specialist Rabalux or Chinese automotive electronics manufacturer Fuerda. With Fuerda, cargo-partner is currently cooperating on a seven-year project. cargo-partner organizes regular seafreight consolidation transports from Ningbo, China to Bratislava, Slovakia and handles the storage of Fuerda’s goods in cargo-partner’s logistics center in Bratislava. Samuel Yu, Logistics Coordinator at Fuerda, is satisfied with the cooperation: “In cargo-partner, we have found a competent partner to manage our frequent sea freight exports, provide comprehensive warehousing services and ensure the safe and secure handling of our sensitive electronic components along the entire transport chain.”
