DB Schenker to launch daily freight train to China

INTERNATIONAL: DB Schenker Rail Automotive is to launch a daily container train service between Germany and China in late November, carrying BMW automotive components from Leipzig to Shenyang.

'With a transit time of 23 days, the direct trains are more than twice as fast as maritime transport followed by transport to the Chinese hinterland', said DB Mobility Logistics board member Dr Karl-Friedrich Rausch...

DB is already carrying car components on the route on an interim basis, with a fourth train carrying 40 containers leaving the Leipzig-Wahren terminal on September 29.

Ambitions for Transasian rail transport were first covered in the diary Another Great Game, then as things heated up, a number of updates in Salon comments in of 2010 and in 2011.
