HAMBURG, Jul 12 (FAM) – Hamburg’s TCO Transcargo, a service provider for freight, warehousing, distribution and container logistics on trains to and from China reports rapid development. Since TCO entered the China-by-rail field 12 months ago, this business shows every sign of further growth, say company officials.

“We primarily handle containers for export to China. That started with three or four 40-foot containers per week,” said TCO managing director Thomas Wolnewitsch. Today, the firm handles 25 containers per week, and these rail containers to China constitute between 10 and 15 per cent of TCO business.
