PIL reduces transit time to Chongqing by up to 80% with additional gateway option via Qinzhou

Singapore, 22 November 2017 - Pacific International Lines (PIL) Group,Singapores leading containership operator, reduces transit time to Chongqing by up to 80% with the offering of an alternative gateway option via Qinzhou in Guangxi.This option is available for our customers in addition to the usual gateway via the Shanghai barge.

Customers today have the option to tap on the inter-modal expertise offered by PIL; shipping goods to Qinzhou instead of Shanghai and then accessing Chongqing by rail on the Qinzhou railway.

The Qinzhou railway is also known as the "Yuguixin" railway (""·)and it began operations in early September this year.

With the rail system in place, it takes roughly 48 hours for goods from Chongqing to be shipped out through the Southern China ports, reducing transit time within China by 80%.

Previously, goods from Chongqing have to be transported by barges via Yangtze River and it would eventually be shipped out from Shanghai. The time taken for the movement of goods within China is approximately 2 weeks.

This additional route is demonstrative of PILs wider involvement in the Southern Transport Corridor under Chinas Belt and Road Initiative.

Ms LisaTeo, Executive Director (Corporate Development) of PIL said: By having such unprecedented access into China and other remote regions of Asia, Europe and Africa, we expect to see heightened levels of cargo flows from previously inaccessible places by ships. Unlike the developed coastal cities, the inland regions of China are largely untapped and their potential growth could represent a new strong and steady source of cargo volume as they continue to

For more information on accessing this gateway, please contact the respective PIL local offices.
