BASEL, Switzerland: March 05, 2019. The Baloise Group insurance company used Panalpina’s Trans-Siberian rail service recently to deliver over 3,400 copies of a new board game called 'Sarah’s Vision' from Shanghai to its Basel headquarters.

Together with professional developers, Baloise created Sarah’s Vision as a tool for employees to understand and experience its company strategy. The story-based game is for one to four players who have to manage resources with the goal of saving the world from going back to the Dark Ages (of the 21st Century)...

Baloise Board gamePrinted and produced in Shanghai, the 11 tons of games took 20 days to travel the 9,000 kilometres by rail from China to Europe via Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Poland and Germany to Panalpina’s regional hub in Vienna, where the containerised shipment was de-stuffed and loaded onto trucks for the final leg to Switzerland.

The games are now being distributed (pictured) to Baloise offices in Belgium, Germany and Luxembourg.

“The strategy board game is a first for Baloise and we wanted to turn to a local, trusted partner of ours,” said Renée Hernández, Baloise Communications manager. “Panalpina’s road and rail service was the smartest solution to transport our cargo from China to Europe. We were very satisfied with the end-to-end solution – it helped us greatly and we could always see where the cargo was.”

In September 2016 Panalpina launched its first own-controlled LCL rail service from China to Poland. “We take care of the entire transport, from pick-up and consolidation in Shanghai, via rail to Warsaw, Poland, where we deconsolidate the cargo and deliver to final destinations across Europe by truck,” explained Pascal Kaltenrieder, Panalpina’s Business Unit manager for Basel.
