An LCL route from Suzhou to Milan via Duisburg has been established. This service will depart every Sunday from Suzhou and make its way to Italy via FELB’s routes to Duisburg. The transit time will be 16 days to Duisburg and another 2 to 4 days to Milan. This marks the first ever LCL service from China to Italy.
At Melzo terminal, the cooperation with the Combimar company will guarantee a smooth and professional deconsolidation, warehousing and on request distribution to all of Italy and beyond.
Furthermore with the opening of this new LCL line, FELB is adding a new service line dedicated for light cargo. This new tariff system will allow companies with cargo needs to consider the LCL rail option as a more attractive option compared to past train routes. An example of this would be the fashion industry, which represents one of the most essential and important industries in Italy.
FELB tested this new service in January with FCL containers to ensure consistent transit times and smooth operations of the service. Only a few months after FELB’s initial routings to Italy last fall, this new offering will add another dimension to their offering.
