01 What are the advantages of China-Europe trains?

As a fast, safe and stable mode of transportation, China-Europe trains have become increasingly popular in European and Central Asian countries in recent years. As one of the transportation methods, LCL can help customers achieve a more economical and flexible freight solution when the freight volume is small.

Compared with traditional LCL transportation, the practical skills of China-Europe LCL transportation pay more attention to the safety and protection of goods, so there are higher requirements for goods packaging and fixing skills.

During the actual operation, you first need to pay attention to whether the packaging of the goods is reasonable to avoid accidents during transportation caused by improper placement of goods or loose loading.

Secondly, it is necessary to ensure that the goods are fixed in the LCL to prevent the goods from swinging or colliding during transportation. At the same time, it is also necessary to pay attention to factors such as temperature, humidity and ventilation inside the LCL to ensure the safety of the goods during transportation.

02 Precautions for international railway transportation

01 Check the condition of the container

Before shipment, please carefully check whether the container is suitable for shipment. If it is stained, damaged, or punctured, you can refuse shipment and notify us immediately to replace or repair the container.

02 Do not overload

The cargo weight limit stipulated in international railway transport is 21.5 tons/20'; 26.5 tons/40'.

03 No partial load allowed

Unbalanced loading affects railway loading operations and seriously affects driving safety. It is required that the center of gravity of the goods be in the middle position and not deviate more than 10 centimeters from the center of the cross line at the bottom of the box to ensure balanced loading.

04 Goods are properly reinforced

Improper reinforcement of the cargo box will cause the cargo to move when driving and turning, or even cause the vehicle to overturn, which will seriously affect the safety of the cargo.

05 Carton number

In order to facilitate tally and customs inspection, the containers should be clearly numbered and accurately reflected on the packing list to facilitate tally and customs inspection.

06 The shipping power of attorney information is consistent

The cargo information filled in the shipping authorization letter must be consistent with the actual shipping information and the content of the waybill, especially the cargo name, weight, volume, etc. Otherwise, it will result in inconsistent freight or even fines.
