Testing shipments by train to China

Sandvik Sweden is testing the feasibility of shipping products to China by train.

Sandvik's central logistics department is testing the shipment of products by train between Sweden and China. Apart from environmental benefits, rail shipment is cheaper than air transportation and twice as fast as sea shipment.

"Trains can be a great addition to transport by sea, as well as a competitive advantage for Sandvik in Asia," says Project Leader Stefan Lindberg.
