No rail freight between Vietnam and Europe for now

Rail freight traffic between Europe and Vietnam has been suspended for the time being, with the war in Ukraine cited as the reason. A train departure to Liege was scheduled for next month, but this has been postponed.

More Vietnam connections
The news is a disappointment for the industry, as it was just gearing up for a new connection between the Vietnamese city of Da Nang to Liege in Belgium, for the shipment of IKEA furniture. From Liege, further distribution was planned to Hamburg and Melzo (Italy).

This planned new departure followed the launch of the first rail freight service from Vietnam to Belgium in July last year, when the capital of Hanoi was connected to Liege by rail. In both cases, the train stops in Zhengzhou in China for customs, and then proceeds along the main route on the New Silk Road. Train traffic between Vietnam China and Russia will continue to proceed as usual.

NEOLink cooperated with our order processing system. He did not replace it or force solutions. Logfret did it better than other companies on the market – it adapted its system to ours. Logfret didn’t come to us saying, “We have this solution, and you either use it or we won’t cooperate.

My suppliers have less or zero experience with international logistics. Thus, not able to create proper documentation which leads to tremendous delay. Thanks to Logfret who provide training to all suppliers and work with us to build up a consolidation hub to reduce transportation costs significantly.
