What is Rail freight service?
With the spread of technology and easy access to means of transportation such as trains, planes, ships, etc., international trade between countries has increased dramatically. For this reason, today, exports and imports from industrialized and powerful countries such as China are very profitable. For this reason, the freight industry has also grown rapidly. One of the transportation methods is rail freight. The movement of cargo, goods, etc. by freight trains is called rail freight. Rail shaping is another name for this method. This method has a reasonable price and along with sea freight and air freight are among the main freight methods. Due to China's extensive economic ties and strong network, DDPCH operates rail freight, air freight and sea freight services from all major Chinese cities to more than 220 countries all around the world.
Everything about Rail freight routes between China and Europe and Russia
Very important factors are influential in transportation. One of the factors that can strengthen the freight industry is economic relations between countries. The greater the economic ties between countries, the greater the volume of trade and cargo between countries. As economic relations between China and Europe, and especially Britain and Russia, are extremely excellent, rail freight from China to Europe is also very prosperous. Russia, one of China's main trading partners, imports most of its cargo through Siberia. Chinese railways to Russia pass through Siberia. Germany and Poland are also the most important terminals in Europe. The China-Warsaw railway route in Poland and China to Hamburg and Duisburg in Germany are among the main rail routes from China to Europe. Due to good trade relations with its Chinese and European partners, DDPCH offers the most competitively priced rail freight services from China to Europe.
Why choose Rail freight service for shipping from China to Europe?
There are many reasons to use rail freight for shipping from China to Europe. Perhaps one of the most important reasons for environmentalists is low fuel consumption and lack of greenhouse gas emissions. Another reason is the very reasonable price of rail shipping compared to other methods, especially air freight. This method has a higher efficiency than road transport. Safety is often very high in rail shipping. Most importantly, after air freight, rail freight has the highest speed. Due to the installation of GPS in freight trains, customers can track the exact location of their cargo from moment to moment. This is exactly why DDPCH offers rail shipping to all its customers who are looking for a cheap, safe and secure shipping method.
Rail Freight VS Air freight
Two of the most important methods of transportation are air shipping and rail shipping. If you want to make the right choice between these two methods, you must first know their differences and be familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of each method. Air freight is the fastest method of shipping goods. Of course, air freight is very expensive. Air freight is used to transport expensive products and luxury goods. Rail freight is cheaper than air freight. Of course, rail freight is slower than air freight. In principle, rail freight is mostly used to move bulky products such as agricultural tools, industrial equipment. DDPCH offers both rail and air freight services with the highest quality.
Rail Freight VS Sea freight
Rail freight and sea freight are two important methods in the freight industry. Each of these methods has its own advantages and disadvantages. If you are hesitant and do not know which method to choose, DDPCH will help you. We must first compare the two methods. Sea freight is cheaper than rail freight. Sea freight is much slower than rail freight. Cargo ships are used to transport very heavy and bulky cargo. Rail freight has more weight and volume limitations than sea freight. DDPCH offers the highest quality sea shipping and rail shipping services to its customers.
Major destination for Rail freight from China
Politics always plays an important role in trade relations between countries. The United States, Europe, Russia and the United Kingdom are China's main trading partners. Of course, different methods are used to move cargo between China and any other country. The choice of shipping method depends on the distance between the two countries, type of cargo, volume of cargo and so on. In terms of rail freight, Russia, Germany, Poland and the United Kingdom are the main destinations for Chinese goods transported by rail, due to the Silk Road and the extensive rail routes between China and European countries. DDPCH has at least one freight train daily from major Chinese cities to European countries. If you are looking for the rail freight from china to UK, rail freight from China to Europe, and rail freight from China to Russia, you need to get in touch with the DDPCH team.
Necessary documents for a Rail freight quotation
Due to the sensitivity and importance of freight process, before doing rail freight, you must complete and prepare various documents. Any defective documents can lead to heavy damages, delays in shipping, customs problems and heavy fines. So be sure to pay attention to the following documents. Documents required for rail freight include Commercial invoice, Packing list, Stuffing list, Stuffing photo, Export clearance, and MRN in Europe. Because of the importance of these documents, the DDPCH team provides special consulting and document completion services to all its clients.
All Type of Container for Rail freight service
In rail freight, wagons are used to move cargo. There are different types of wagons depending on the type of cargo. Flat wagons are used to carry heavy industrial loads, beams, etc. Roofing wagons are used for sensitive loads. Basically, after loading, these wagons are sealed to protect them from any damage. Tank wagons are one of the most important types of wagons that are used to carry fuel and liquids. Refrigerated wagons are also used to move sensitive goods such as food, meat, vegetables and other perishables. DDPCH with a professional team and advanced equipment, transports all your goods from China to all over the world. Loads are placed in containers before being placed in the train car. Containers are divided into two categories: 20-foot and 40-foot.
Maximum weight for loading in container
For more safety in rail freight, the World Freight Organization has set special rules and restrictions. One of the limitations is the weight limit. According to the rules of cargo weight, each container has a weight limit. For 20-foot containers, the permissible carrying weight is 23,995 kg and for 40-foot containers, the permissible weight is 30,481 kg. If a shipping company does not comply with these restrictions and rules, they will be severely fined. DDPCH also follows all of these rules to protect the rights of its customers.
Port of Departure in China for Rail freight service
If you have chosen rail freight among the transportation methods, you must be familiar with the main cities of China in the field of rail shipping. DDPCH provides rail freight services from all Chinese cities to Europe and more than 220 countries around the world include Germany, UK, and Russia. China's major cities in terms of rail routes include Shanghai, Guangzhou, Zhengzhou, Chengdu, Shenyang, Wuhan, Xiamen, Changan, Shilong and Yi Wu. These cities have the busiest train stations. And several freight trains depart from these cities to Europe every day.
Calculate Rail freight chargeable weight
You may be wondering what is the basis for calculating the rail shipping costs from China. There are two bases in rail freight. The first basis is the volumetric weight of the load, which is obtained from a different formula in each method. In rail freight, you have to multiply the width, height and length of each package to get the volume of cargo based on cubic centimeters. Then multiply this value by the number of packages. Then divide the total load by 3000 to get the volume weight. Now you have to compare the volumetric weight with the gross weight of the load. Whichever is greater is the basis of the calculation of the rail freight costs from China. For example, if you have two cartons with dimensions of 120, 50 and 90 cm, your total load volume will be 1080000 cubic centimeters. The volumetric weight of your load is 360. If your gross weight is 300 kg, you should use volumetric weight as the basis for the calculation of rail freight costs from China.
Rail freight benefits
Although rail freight has its limitations and disadvantages, its benefits are many. The advantages of rail freight includes very reasonable cost compared to air freight, and much higher speed than road freight, and sea freight. Also, the safety of railways is very high and rail freight has a high level of safety. This method is also very suitable for moving heavy cargo such as industrial tools, agricultural equipment, etc., compared to sea freight. Because of these benefits, DDPCH has always offered rail freight as one of the most important freight methods to its customers.
Dangerous goods in Rail freight service
For the maximum safety of products and freight trains and to prevent any accident, the International Cargo Organization has special rules that all members must follow. One of the most important laws of this organization is the ban on the movement of dangerous goods. The World Cargo Organization has put a number of goods on its list of dangerous goods. These goods include toxic gases, toxins, radioactive materials, pathogens and explosives, explosives, oxidizers, corrosive and military weapons. DDPCH, as a key member of the World Cargo Organization, also follows all of these rules to protect the rights of its customers.
Alternatives for Rail freight service
There are different ways to transport and move goods between different countries. Although rail freight is one of the main methods of freight, for various reasons, you may not and may not even want to use this method to move your products. In this case, you should look for alternative options. Alternative options for rail freight include sea freight and air freight. If you do not have volume and weight restrictions, but you are in a hurry in terms of time and the cost does not matter to you, you can use sea freight. If the cost is important to you and you are not in a hurry, you can use sea freight. DDPCH offers sea freight, air freight and rail freight services to its customers.
FCL vs LCL In Rail freight service
As you know, in rail freight, the products must be placed in special containers before they can be placed in the train carriages. Rail freight has two different methods. The first method is Full Container Load or FCL. In this method, your load is so large and voluminous that it occupies the entire space of a container. In this case, a complete container is dedicated only to your products. The second method is Less Container Load or LCL. In this way, your cargo is not very large and bulky, and it does not make sense at all to allocate a complete container to your cargo. In this case, you share a container with several other people. DDPCH operates both rail freight methods from China to Europe.
Insurance in Rail freight service
In general, insurance plays a very important role in various industries, including the freight industry. Suppose a cargo train carrying your products crashes. What will happen to your capital and money? This is where insurance can save your life by paying for damages caused by unforeseen events. Under the rules of the World Cargo Organization, rail shipping companies are required to insure all their cargo trains. But this insurance usually covers part of your capital up to 60%. If you want to be comfortable with any possible accident, you have to insure your own cargo. DDPCH strongly recommends the use of reputable and international insurance companies to protect and save the capital of its customers.
Restrictions in Rail freight service
Each method of transportation has its advantages and disadvantages. One of the most important disadvantages of shipping methods is the limitations. There are a number of legal restrictions and a series of technical restrictions in rail freight. One of the legal restrictions is hazardous substances. Rail freight companies do not have the right to move hazardous materials listed by the World Freight Organization. In terms of technical limitations, we can mention rail routes. Suppose you plan to move your cargo from China to Italy by rail. There is no direct rail route between China and Italy. For this reason, you have to move your cargo from one car to another several times, and this will greatly increase the cost of transportation. In addition to rail route restrictions, each wagon has a specific volume, and freight trains have specific size and volume restrictions. These two can be considered as two of the most important limitations of rail freight. Of course, according to the plan of freight companies, trains usually depart for European countries every two or three weeks. So you need to plan so that your shipment is not delayed.
How book a Container in Rail shipping service?

Then, to compare prices, it is better to go to several other sites and calculate the prices of other rail shipping companies. Finally, after reaching the best price, choose one of the shipping companies and use its services. DDPCH offers A to Z all rail shipping services from China to Europe for you with the lowest price and highest quality.
Transit time in Rail freight service
In general, the transit time is one of the most important factors in choosing the shipping method. For example, suppose you need a very important material and you only have 8 days. Surely in these circumstances you have no choice but to use air freight. But if you are not in a hurry and you are thinking more about the final price of the products, DDPCH offers rail freight. The duration of transit depends on various factors such as weather conditions, distance between origin and destination, etc. Generally, the standard transit time for the rail freight from main cities in China to Europe, is about 14 to 22 days.
