On January 29, the Asia-Europe block train QILU under the “COSCO Shipping Logistics - Haier” project loaded with Haier washing machines, refrigerators and other electronic appliances slowly departed from Jiaozhou Station of CR Intermodal Qingdao, and is expected to arrive in Russia’s Nizhnekamsk in 15 days. This is yet another China-Europe block train successfully launched by COSCO SHIPPING Logistics and marks a new stage of strategic cooperation between COSCO SHIPPING Logistics and Shandong Hi-speed Group.
Since the start of the strategic cooperation between the two parties, COSCO SHIPPING Logistics has rapidly integrated its internal resources and built a project team to fully support the high-quality development of the block train, with value creation as the core purpose. COSCO SHIPPING Logistics Qingdao, a subsidiary of COSCO SHIPPING Logistics, has actively cooperated with Qilu Asia-Europe Block Train Company, well designed the whole-process end-to-end block train service, and carried out joint marketing and product promotion activities. The two sides worked together to overcome the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, conducted thorough research on customer needs, and successfully won the bid for Haier's Russia project in December 2020 with their sound logistics solutions and advantageous technical strength. The launch of this block train has not only effectively helped Haier address the logistics supply chain transportation challenge caused by the pandemic, but also laid a solid foundation for future cooperation.
