LTE - the China-Shuttle

Since September 2016, the LTE-group has been operating the weekly Tilburg-Chengdu Shuttle for the CDIRS (Chengdu International Railway Services) on behalf of RTSB.
Chengdu is the capital of Sichuan province, with about 11 million inhabitants.
The city is one of the centers of the electronics industry with a fast technical and economical development.
The great distance from Chengdu to the seaports makes rail transport to Europe a good alternative to sea freight. Thanks to the high-quality products, the short travel time (12-15 days of railway transport instead of about 35 days of combined railway/ship) is the great advantage of railroad transport.


The LTE-group serves the section Tilburg (NL) to Malaszewicze (PL/BY) with just one change of driver, starting with LTE NL operating from Tilburg to Frankfurt/Oder. Then LTE PL drives the train with the support of Lotos to the Polish-Belarusian border to the Europort terminal Malaszewicze. There, the containers are loaded onto broad-gauge wagons and the Russian section (Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan, China) begins.
