Rail transportation is considered a fundamental pillar in the global movement of goods. Not least due to the current logistical challenges in the Red Sea region, companies appreciate the reliability and efficiency of transporting goods from China to Europe by rail. Sebastian Glenschek, Head of Sales at Hermes International, explains how this particular rail service works and why the connection is a safe and cost-effective alternative to sea and air freight.
Sialkot in Pakistan is a major player in the global market for medical products and exports to numerous countries. The city has made a name for itself among many medical institutions and specialists as a reliable supplier. And yet, before the surgical instruments can be used at their destination, they need to be transported across many national borders. Hermes International supports its customers in the export of these important healthcare goods and maintains a strategic partnership with the local logistics service provider WWG. By combining local and international logistics expertise and intermodal transportation capabilities, the two companies ensure a smooth and efficient supply chain from Sialkot to anywhere in the world. Tariq Jehanzeb, Branch Manager at WWG, provides insights into the work on site and reveals what is planned for the trade route to Germany.
