Railway Carriage

Railway Carriage

A freight train, also known as a cargo train or goods train, is a group of freight cars pulled by one or more locomotives. This carriage transports cargo all or part of the way between the shipper in China and the destination in another country.

Bacolod organizes such logistics chains by booking specially built cars, trains can transport bulk material, intermodal containers, general freight or specialised freight containers.

A variety of goods wagons are used in rail freight. Below is a summary of rail freight car types and the type of cargo these cars are used for. You can request any railway carriage type depending on your needs.

Box cars/covered wagons General cargo
Flat cars Heavy, OOG loads
Well wagons Ro-Ro
Refrigerator/reefer Perishable goods
Open-topped wagons Dry bulk (e.g. coal)

We will also provide you with a tracking number, so that you can keep an eye on tracking using online tools.

Rail Freight Shipping Routes from China

Rail freight from China to the rest of the world is possible via a variety of railways. A significant rail route connects to the Trans-Siberian Railway, beginning in northern China. This route is a key junction for rail freight movements in the western area. Furthermore, this line offers a solution for the transportation of large OOG and bulk cargo.

The two primary freight rail routes for full container loads (FCL) each have a number of sub-routes. For freight to and from south and central China, such as the regions surrounding Chengdu, Chongqing, and Zhengzhou, the southern route through Kazakhstan and southern Russia is the best option. Container transport for the northern regions of Beijing, Changchun, Dalian, and Shenyang is excellent via the northern route across Siberia.

Maaszewicze and Warsaw in Poland, as well as Duisburg and Hamburg in Germany are the most significant rail terminals in Europe. Some other routes are Yiwu-Madrid, Yiwu-London, Southern Route, and others.

FCL Rail Freight from China

You don’t have to have enough cargo to fill a whole container when shipping FCL. A partially filled container can be shipped as an FCL as well. The advantage is that your cargo will not share a container with other shipments, as would be the case if you choose a less-than-container-load option (LCL).

For rail freight from China, FCL is an affordable and quick shipping solution. For all types of goods, including general cargo, OOG, bulk or breakbulk, hazardous items, and Ro-Ro, we can arrange freight, transshipment, and last mile truck freight.

You can select from a variety of container sizes and types to better suit your shipment. Special cargo requires special containers, and Bacolod is ready to prepare them for your rail freight from China.

LCL Rail Freight from China

If a shipment contains insufficient products to fill a fully filled container, we can arrange for your cargo to be booked as LCL rail freight.

A Bacolod freight forwarder will book a full container, collect products from various shippers, and consolidate them into a single container. We will then separate these products at the port of destination or at the transshipment point, as they are intended for distinct consignees in various ports.

LCL rail freight from China is perfect if you have less than 15 CBM of cargo. Our services fully support such mode of transit.
