Fuel a more sustainable future

HONG KONG: September 20, 2017. Tigers, a supply chain management company, has launched 'Tiger Rail' with a 16-day transit time to and from Duisburg, Germany, and Hefei, Chongqing, and Chengdu, China.

Tiger RailFollowing a proof-of-concept trial during the summer, customers can now choose between a block train, a Full Container Load (FCL) or Less than Container Load (LCL) for weekly shipments linking Europe with 15 origin stations in China.

Tigers China managing director Paul Huang said the company had seized an opportunity to provide integrated logistics for customers who require shorter transit times than ocean freight and lower costs than airfreight.

Noting Tigers had already moved over 500 TEUs as FCL, and 1500 cubic meters of LCL shipments, Huang added: "Our customers benefit from lower shipping costs by empty container return in Switzerland for westbound services, and Shipper's Own Container for eastbound services, for both FCL and LCL."

The company said it is also planning to offer e-commerce customers a cost-effective service along the new Silk Road between Europe and China: "We are currently preparing test shipments for European Union Business-to-Consumer parcels importing to China with Tiger Rail, and look forward to expanding our rail freight capabilities even further," explained Tigers CEO Andrew Jillings.

The Tiger Rail launch follows the company's UK certification as an Authorized Economic Operator.

Based in Hong Kong with offices and facilities throughout the U.S., Europe, Asia, Australia, and South Africa, Tigers specializes in the automotive, healthcare, technology, fashion, wine and perishables, and outdoor and active lifestyle sectors.
