UPS launches Europe-Hong Kong FCL rail service

UPS has launched a new FCL service between Duisburg, Germany and Hong Kong, which leverages its existing Europe-to-China rail service, businesses can now enjoy faster transit times of up to 30% versus FCL ocean freight, and cost savings of up to 60% versus air freight.

The new UPS "Preferred FCL-Rail service" comes with seal management, alarms, and optional GPS container tracking to monitor location, temperature, humidity and movement and light. UPS systems are electronically linked to customs authorities, reducing the risk of errors and speeding up clearance processes.

UPS’s Flex Global View provides end-to-end visibility into shipment status and critical milestones to keep customers informed of the progress of their goods.
