Improved Intermodal service from China

Faster sea-air service following new hub in Osaka

With a new hub in Osaka, Japan, we are able to offer a much faster intermodal service, via sea-air from Hong Kong and Shanghai.

Our Customs bonded facility in Rinku, between Kansai International Airport and Osaka Port offers ideal conditions for the efficient combination of air and ocean freight between China and Europe and customers can benefit from 50 percent shorter transit times than on the existing route via Dubai.

The new route has been developed to comply with the need of shorter transit times, as requested by our customers.

  • HKG and PVG (Shanghai) via Japan to LHR
  • Transit time 9-10 days
  • 3 x weekly departures
  • Reduced transit time and freight costs
  • Full control over shipments - every touch point is handled by DB Schenker personnel

The existing extensive DB SCHENKERskybridge network combines the advantages of air and ocean freight – the moderate price of ocean freight with the speed of air freight –especially for shipments from Asia to Europe via Dubai. It ensures seamless transit, as DB Schenker handles both legs as well as the customs procedures. In addition to this, the new solution also results in a visible reduction of CO2 emissions compared to regular air freight, which positively affects the overall carbon footprint of the customer.
