Since the start of this month Nippon Express promotes container forwarding services from Asia, including India, to Central and Eastern Europe via Koper, Slovenia, as “Adria Direct”. The route from Asia to Budapest has less distances of sea and land transportation, by approximately 3,700 kilometers and 550 kilometers, respectively, from the route via Hamburg, Germany, the Japanese enterprise states in a press release.
Advantages of the services according to Nippon Express:
-) The route from Singapore to Central and Eastern Europe has shortened the transit time for freight transportation by up to four days, and charges for a 40ft container by up to about 10 percent less than the Hamburg route, in the company’s comparison.
-) Nippon Express launched the Danube Express, consolidation services from Japan to Budapest, via Koper, in 2015, and has since steadily gained experiences in this field.
Background of the services according to Nippon Express:
-) The use of inland transportation from Koper Port to Hungary and other Central and East European countries by Japanese subsidiary companies has been growing considerably in recent years.
-) Based on its experiences in this field, Nippon Express is determined to expand its “Adria Direct” forwarding services from Asia to Eastern and Central Europe.
