An increasing demand for an alternative to air freight and sea freight
Last year, we handled about 25 000 cubic metres of goods at Greencarrier Freight Services using our container train solution between China and Europe. Johan Ignell, who is one of the original initiators of developing our train solution, is now taking on the challenge as Rail Freight Manager at Greencarrier Freight Services. He has previously worked as Trade Lane Manager with focus on the Far East, and has extensive knowledge and experience of the Chinese market, working in our Shanghai office.
Johan sees a clear increase in demand for fast, efficient, and sustainable transport alternatives between China and Europe. “There is an increasing demand on the market of transport solutions that are not as costly as air freight and don’t have as long lead-times as sea freight”, he says. “Right now, due to the current strike situation in the Port of Gothenburg in Sweden, we are also seeing an increasing demand from exporters in Sweden to transport their goods by rail to China. As a general trend, many customers are looking into innovative and sustainable transport solutions that reduce their environmental impact.”
