Rail Freight Forwarder Services

Knowledgeable Team of Railway Freight Experts

APC’s staff has deep knowledge about every demand of rail transportation in order to make it an efficient and very safe way to transport your freight. APC offers reliable rail transport services catered to your needs from and to Asia and Europe. Nowadays it is possible to have almost daily departures from China to Europe, making the service both reliable and flexible.

Our FCL and LCL Shipping Services


The decision to use FCL or LCL depends on the size and volume of the shipment, and APC has both services available.


For larger shipments, we recommend using FCL so that it can fill an entire container, while LCL is suitable for smaller shipments that cannot. In addition, FCL is more cost-effective for larger shipments as it utilizes the entire container, avoiding the need to share space with other shipments. On the other hand, for smaller shipments, LCL is a better option as it allows for the cost of the container to be shared with other shipments, resulting in a more cost-effective service.

Advantages of Rail Freight Transport

Respecting the environment is one of our top priorities at APC, which is why we offer extensive rail freight solutions to efficiently transport your cargo without adding too much extra to your carbon footprint.

As most rail services depend on electricity, it proves to be a much more environmentally form of freight transport than the likes of airplanes, where trains emit less carbon dioxide and pollutants – meaning you can rest assured that your cargo can travel long distances in a more sustainable fashion. This solution is also relatively quick and allows for punctual delivery times. Railway transport is also an extremely safe and secure option for freight forwarding, which can be attributed to advancements in technology such as effective GPS tracking in trains, allowing for easier traceability.
