Strategic collaboration with Yingkou, China Expansion of rail transport from China to Russia and Europe
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Trans Eurasia Logistics GmbH has been selected by Yingkou, the city with the largest port in North-East China, as its strategic partner for the development and enhancement of rail-based transport services from China to Russia and Europe.
To reaffirm and consolidate this additional collaboration, a delegation from Yingkou’s munici-pal government visited Trans Eurasia Logistics in Moscow and Berlin from 14.09.2013 to 17.09.2013. This delegation was led by Mr Baoyu Gao, Mayor of Yingkou and Head of the Port Authority.
During this visit, detailed discussions took place regarding, amongst other things, the activities to expand rail transport from China to Europe and Russia.
A major advantage for international shipments via the port city of Yingkou is the fact that the local customs authorities answer directly to the municipal government, and not to the central Chinese customs authorities. It has therefore been possible to simplify the customs clearance of export goods for customers, whereby the customs formalities are already undertaken in Yingkou or on the way to the border. This means that 1) for goods shipments from China to Japan, for example, the customs formalities are already carried out on the ship – prior to their arrival at the Japanese port – or 2) for rail shipments to Russia, they are carried out in Yingkou or on the way to the border terminal.
Time delays at the border post or destination port are therefore avoided, and any applicable additions to the required paperwork can be initiated in advance, before crossing the border.
