CEVA Logistics has announced the launch of aTruck-Rail-Truck solution to keep customers’ freight moving across Asia during the COVID-19 crisis. China and the Southeast Asian region are facing flight suspensions and reductions, space limits and operational restrictions in addition to long waits at border crossings due to the COVID-19 pandemic. CEVA Logistics introduced TRT as a multi-modal transport solution to remedy these issues.
Export documentation requirements for the TRT service are the same as an all-trucked service and Customs clearance can be achieved within three hours. The China-Vietnam road border crossing point between Pingxiang and Lang Son currently suffers from backlogs of 2-4 days. To avoid this, shipments are picked up by CEVA across South and East China and loaded into 45’ hi-cube containers. They are taken by truck to the cross-border train and into Vietnam, where they are then unloaded onto trucks and delivered to final destination. Shipments bound for Thailand which were taking up to 8 days are now arriving in 3-4 days. The new service is also being used by CEVA customers in Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore.
“With our TRT solution, serious traffic jams at the border crossings can be avoided. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it really is the best solution for customers wishing to move urgent shipments between China and Southeast Asia. As a pioneer in TRT service, we will keep exploring our Road & Rail network between China and Southeast Asia to further develop these services,” said Guillaume Col, Chief Operating Officer at CEVA Logistics.
