Transportation between Europe and China?

We are pleased to inform you

Contact us!

Transportation by rail between Europe and China (and vice versa) has been gaining tremendous popularity in the recent years. Air freight may be faster but is more expensive. Ocean freight is cheaper but often takes too long. Besides its sustainability, the rail transport modality is a good addition to the other modalities for several reasons and can offer opportunities for you.

KLG Europe is one of the two leading companies in the joint venture “New Silk Way Logistics” (NSWL). We are proud of the service we have established together. The cooperation within this joint venture provides a complete package of logistics services before, after and during the route.

With our product, KLG Rail, we offer a first-class door-to-door intermodal rail and logistics solution between China and Europe and visa versa. Total customer care, reliability, knowledge and expertise are the focus. A few years after establishing this service, we have become the market leader in (temperature-controlled) door-to-door rail transport to and from China. Rail transport is the modality of the future and more and more companies are seeing the benefits of this sustainable, reliable and safe solution.

One of the benefits of transporting by rail to and from China to Europe is cost savings, in capital costs due to the shorter lead times of the goods compared to ocean freight.

Continues developments and implementations of improvements and innovations are central to fully meet our customer’s needs. In addition to these unique services, we also offer the possibility of LCL (less than truck load) transportation. We are the partner for a sustainable, reliable and safe intermodal solution (door-to-door). KLG Europe is your logistics partner for the future.


Any size container can be used for intercontinental rail transport. Complete unburdening of rail transport begins with the container. KLG has its own containers. But it is also possible to use your own container(s) or container(s) owned by the shipper for rail transport.

The container solution that perfectly suits your needs and which is provided by us is always fully inspected. Fully compliant with the appropriate certifications and applicable regulations, regarding to the loaded goods.

We have our own fleet of approximately 150 conditioned, modified containers which are totally adapted to the conditions that can come across during transport via the New Silk Road. The knowledge ensures continuity but the reliability we can deliver through good equipment and the service of KLG Europe.

Cooperation with our partner Unit45 makes it possible to offer other solutions in addition to standard containers. Such as containers for the transport of perishable goods, automotive, machinery, finished goods, medical goods, etc.

Our own containers

Standard containers:

  • 20 ft standard container
  • 20 ft high cube container
  • 40 ft standard container
  • 40 ft high cube container
  • 45 ft high cube container
  • 45 ft high cube pallet wide container

Temperature controlled containers

  • 40 ft reefer/ temperature controlled container
  • 40 ft high cube reefer/ temperature controlled container
  • 45 ft high cube reefer/ temperature controlled container

The reefer containers have been optimally developed with sustainability in mind. The containers consume fossil-free fuel, something that was not possible before because this type of fuel is more sticky and sensitive to extreme temperatures (-40 to +40 degrees Celsius). 

Monitoring (24/7)

KLG attaches great importance to control and transparency. That is why we have chosen to fully monitor the transports with our control tower and thus keep the service level optimal. We call this total KLG Europe unburdening. KLG Europe can share and monitor through its 24/7 control tower and real time information, this offers transparency.

Quality and trust

Due to the unique combination of good equipment and the knowledge and expertise of KLG Europe, we offer a total unburdening of the door-to-door transport by rail. Having our own fleet to ensure that the quality of the loads is guaranteed is our philosophy. In combination with the centuries-old core values of KLG Europe, this ensures a unique experience. KLG is the logistics partner that moves with the customers' needs, with the future and with an eye for sustainability and innovation.


KLG Europe offers this rail service, this is collaboration with New Silk Way Logistics. NSWL is a collaboration between two logistics companies, including KLG Europe. Together we put our heads together in 2016. Our motto in this was, " Who can share, can multiply."

In 2016, we already had a lot of demand for freight transport towards China. At that time, we saw a growth in the overflow of empty containers in Europe. There was an imbalance in rail freight traffic, it was mainly heading west. A unique opportunity to make better use of these containers which have to go back to China anyway and fill this gap in the market.

More information about NSWL can be found on the NSWL website.
