Yusen Logistics (China) Co., Ltd. has begun an intermodal transport service using the Wuhan–Guangzhou Inland Railway. The service will be offered three times a week from Wuhan to Guangzhou and once a week from Guangzhou to Wuhan, supporting the growing demand for road transportation between plants in these two regions home to booming automotive industries.
In recent years, major automobile manufacturers have accelerated their expansion in Wuhan by launching new plants there, and the area is gaining greater prominence as a center for the automotive industry. In Guangzhou automotive sales remain favorable and companies are continuing to expand their plants and manufacturing facilities. Many automotive parts manufacturers operate in both Wuhan and Guangzhou, and in response to the growing demand for transportation between these plants, Yusen Logistics (China) has started an intermodal transport service using the Wuhan–Guangzhou Inland Railway.
We offer this service three times a week from Wuhan to Guangzhou and once a week from Guangzhou to Wuhan. Whether the departure is from Wuhan or Guangzhou, cargo is loaded onto the freight car on the day that it is collected, and is dispatched the following day at around 2 a.m., arriving at the terminal two days later at about 2 a.m., being delivered that afternoon at the earliest. By using the Wuhan–Guangzhou Inland Railway for this service, we can reduce costs compared with chartered trucks, and also possible to offer service on a fixed schedule. By switching from truck transportation to this service, we will be able to adapt to exhaust emission regulations and other environmental regulations, which are expected to become stricter in China in the future.
Yusen Logistics (China) Co., Ltd. offers a variety of services combining sea and air transportation and contract logistics with logistics center in Wuhan measuring about 3,000 square meters and another in Guangzhou about 15,500 square meters. . Going forward, Yusen Logistics will continue to provide bespoke supply chain logistics.
