We have been focusing on the direct rail connection between China and Austria (and on to Italy) for some years now. The province of Shaanxi is located in the middle of the People's Republic of China and is considered one of the birthplaces of Chinese industry.

This connection, which begins in Xi'an, the capital of the Shaanxi region, runs on the Northern Silk Road and crosses the Chinese-Kazakh border at Dostyk before passing through Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Poland and the Czech Republic on its way to Austria. After a short stop at Terminal Vienna South (Wien Süd), the train is then dispatched on to Milan. This journey of approximately 10,000 train kilometres is covered in a total of 14 to 16 days. Stopping at Terminal Vienna South (Wien Süd) means that goods can be distributed further via our dense and efficient network of TransFER connections to Germany, Hungary, Slovenia, Romania, Turkey and also within Austria.
