2017 has already brought big news for the UK freight industry. China Railway has launched a direct freight service from Zhengzhou China to Barking UK in order to develop trade links with London and many other European cities. The new long distance link is part of a strategy launched by the Chinese Government to boost infrastructure with Europe as a whole. London is now the 15th city to join what the Chinese government is calling ‘The New Silk Road’. The freight train service will pass through many major European cities before reaching its final destination of Barking UK in east London.
The freight train will take approximately 2 weeks to cover the 12000 mile journey from China to Barking in the UK. This new train link provides a number of benefits for those wishing to import products, it is cheaper than air freight and much faster than sea freight whilst being just as reliable. Many importers and distributes will use the new train link to import their Amazon products. The Uneek Group headquarters is only a stones through from the Barking freight train terminal in London, giving our clients even more options when it comes to importing and distributing their products from China and other major European cities.
