The railway has just added this point, with stable schedules, container transportation, and suitability for centralized transportation of bulk goods.Price advantage:It is also between air and sea transportation, sometimes even lower than sea transportation. LCL goods occasionally have special prices for small items, which can be charged according to the express delivery price.Wide distribution of similarities:Traditional sea freight consolidation points are concentrated in ports, but railway consolidation points are distributed in inland cities in China and Europe.Shift density:There are many available schedules, and some domestic departure stations have almost daily schedules.
