New Silk Way Logistics
KLG Europe is one of the leading logistics initiators and one of the shareholders of the joint venture 'New Silk Way Logistics', which was founded in 2016. By making use of each other's network, specialties and capacities, we can provide you with the best possible service. In short: complete unburdening.
We see the demand of transport to and from China increasing all the time. With a growth from 'containers only' to requests at 'block train level'. New Silk Way Logistics is investing in the future. In addition to moving goods faster via rail transport, compared to ocean freight, it is also more sustainable. This provides benefits; such as less cost and more sustainable profit.
Train transport China
KLG Europe is gaining ground in the field of train transport to China. The reason is that the transit times are considerably shorter compared to sea freight. The goods from China usually reach Europe after 18 days. In addition, the costs are lower than air freight. From a logistical point of view, transportation by train is the ideal solution for transporting goods to and from China. In recent years, this mode has gained tremendous popularity and more and more companies are choosing rail transport to and from China as an alternative to sea and air freight.
Suez Canal blockade
The Suez Canal blockade was considered an unprecedented disaster for shipping. But rail freight, particularly Eurasian rail freight, shows the opposite picture. New Silk Way Logistics has fixed space on trains, which provides flexibility in demand. We always book enough capacity for our customers.

Combining several means of transport to move your freight is called intermodal transport. At KLG Europe, this transport also connects seamlessly.

- Air freight;
- Sea freight;
- Train transportation;
- Road transport;
- Express service.
Due to our years of experience and good business relations at home and abroad, we can transport your freight without any problems and know our way all over Europe.
