At Global Shipping we offer rail freight solutions for your shipment between Europe and Asia whenever they offer a more favourable cost or speed of service.
This shipping method is the safest and most eco-friendly way of transporting goods by land, allowing your company to move very large shipments at once, at a lower price for long-distance transport.
Also, it is the ideal solution if your company needs to move an urgent cargo safely and reliably: railroad transportation delivery time is not influenced by traffic or weather conditions and, due to strict rail freight timetables, it boasts a higher predictability of deliveries.
It is crucial to rely on a trustworthy partner when choosing either FCL (Full Container Load) or LCL (Less than Container Load), since there are several factors to consider: the dimensions and the weight of your shipment, your type of goods and the transit time (how quickly do you need to get your goods at destination?). Once we have evaluated with you all these elements, we will plan a tailor-made shipment that satisfies your needs.
FCL is a quicker and less risky shipping solution where all goods in the container are owned by one party. It is ideal for loose items and voluminous products.
LCL is a flexible and cost-effective option for transporting less voluminous shipments. The container is loaded with cargo from multiple parties.

A 40 ft container can generally squeeze about 60 cbm worth of goods inside and you can load 26.500 kilos of goods (30.460 kilos tare weight included).
Among the factors to be taken into consideration are requested time for the loading; place of loading; type of goods; shipping company.
