Tigers launches rail freight service linking destinations across the new Silk Road


Tigers to offer scheduled services for European e-commerce shippers importing to China

Hong Kong, Hong Kong, Tuesday 12th September 2017 – Tigers has launched a new rail freight service, called Tiger Rail, offering customers a 16-day transit time both east and westbound, between Duisburg, Germany, and Hefei, Chongqing, and Chengdu, China.

Tiger Rail customers can charter a train, or book Full Container Load (FCL) or Less than Container Load (LCL) shipments on weekly scheduled services to and from over 15 origin stations in China.

The Hong Kong-headquartered supply chain specialist is also planning to offer e-commerce customers shipping parcels from Europe to China a cost-effective service along the new Silk Road.

“We have seized the opportunity to provide integrated logistics for our customers, who increasingly require shorter transit times than ocean freight, and lower costs than airfreight, making Tiger Rail the perfect solution,” said Paul Huang, Managing Director, Tigers China.

“Our customers benefit from lower shipping costs by empty container return in Switzerland for westbound services, and Shipper’s Own Container (SOC) for eastbound services, for both FCL and LCL.

“Tigers has already supported customers to transport over 500 TEUs as FCL, and 1500 cubic meters (CBMs) as LCL along the new Silk Road.”

Tiger Rail’s inaugural shipment took place over the summer, on behalf of one of one of the largest manufacturers of exhaust and suspension systems, which chartered a train to transport construction materials, auto parts, and electronics.

“We are currently preparing test shipments for European Union (EU) Business to Consumer (B2C) parcels importing to China with Tiger Rail, and look forward to expanding our rail freight capabilities even further,” said Andrew Jillings, Chief Executive Officer and Group Managing Director, Tigers.

Tiger Rail customers can track and trace their freight shipments using the Tiger Trax platform.

The launch of Tiger Rail comes only weeks after Tigers achieved Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) certification in the UK, expanded its footprint with a new office in Leeds, and launched a post-Brexit solution to combat any disruption caused by Brexit.

Social Responsability

Tigers is a ‘Caring’ Company – We care for our people and our communities.  Our people are our biggest asset. We encourage open communication and continuous learning.  “Savages”  is  our  in-house leadership development program to nurture our employees to become future leaders.

Charity Contributions – We support Ubuntu Pathways in South Africa and Discover Urjaa Charitable Trust in India. We do this because it can take a child from learning how to create a simple spreadsheet, to coding a piece of software that could change the world.

Carbon Footprint – We minimize our CO2 footprint by stretching efficiency to its ultimate limits across our services portfolio. For instance, our hybrid Ship+ product decreases the reliance on air-only shipments and can reduce carbon footprint by as much as 50%.

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
