We have been informed by China Railway Group Co. Ltd. that we need to expect delays for westbound trains between China and Europe on the “south routes” through Kazakhstan due to terminal congestion caused by dramatic increase of the rail volumes between China and Europe.

As usual, your fr-8 team aims to keep the service level as high- and the transit times as short as possible, following our guideline to create supply chains, STRONGER than their links.

Until the situation improves, we however need to expect in average +three (3) to seven (7) days for the transit between origin- and destination -terminal. We highly recommend to consider this fact in your supply chain management.

Further news will be published as soon as available.
