Rail transport along the Silk Road

The invasion of Ukraine by the armed forces of the Russian Federation is causing concern for some shippers who have their goods transported by rail along the Silk Road. Currently, rail transports on the Silk Road are running smoothly. The railway line that runs from China through Russia and Belarus to Western Europe is a major infrastructure project for China, which has a strategic interest in rail transports to the West. Russia, in turn, has a strategic interest in a good relationship with China.

We are following the current developments very closely and are in constant contact with our colleagues in China as well as with the railway operators. All trains on the line are monitored around the clock. We will keep you informed about further developments.

Should you have any questions on this topic, please do not hesitate to get in touch with your trusted contact.
