On January 1,
2022, with a long whistle, the COSCO SHIPPING Special Train for Hisense Home
Appliances fully loaded with Hisense electrical products slowly departed from
Jimo Port Station. The goods will be loaded on board a containership under
COSCO SHIPPING Lines to Europe and South America after arriving at Huangdao
COSCO SHIPIPNG Lines has striven to open up new intermodal
Hisense Group, as
a key strategic partner of COSCO SHIPPING, has established close cooperative relationship
with the corporation. In the context of global supply chain strain, COSCO
SHIPIPNG Lines has striven to open up new intermodal transportation channels
and provide customers with new “end-to-end” services so as to address the
customer’s pain points.
All the Hisense
home appliance products used to be shipped to overseas markets by liners after
being transported to the ports by road and loaded onboard for shipping.
However, the huge volume of shipments and heavy traffic at the ports often
cause congestions that seriously affect the efficiency of cargo collection.
By learning about
the customer needs and integrating the market resources, COSCO SHIPPING Lines
launched the sea-rail intermodal transport service from Jimo to Huangdao just
in time. COSCO SHIPPING Lines Qingdao were then commissioned to communicate
with the customer about the details of the transportation plan and advance the
rolling-out of the intermodal transport business.
The new business combines road, rail and marine transportation
The new business
combines road, rail and marine transportation with end-to-end customized
service, boasting multidimensional advantages in terms of the service cost,
timeliness and stability. And it has been highly recognized by Hisense after
the test operation. Moreover, the two sides are also vigorously promoting the
official operation of the special train, aiming to realize two round trips per
Looking forward, based on the smooth launch of
the train, COSCO SHIPPING will continue to bring its “end-to-end” product
development efforts into greater depth and sophistication, and strive to
provide customers with more and better differentiated logistics service
products and supply chain solutions.
