Ahlers China Projects

Rail Transport

When the port of Shanghai was barely operational due to pandemic restrictions, rail freight transportation remains a sustainable alternative. Having years of expertise in railway transportation between China and Eurasia we offer optimal solutions to our clients, who value reliable partnerships, reasonable pricing, and meticulous fulfillment of obligations

Air Cargo

Urgent cargo transportation in the amount of 175 pallets with a total weight of 100 tons from China was done by Ahlers Team this June. The delivery of cargo to Tianjin Airport and coordination both with agents at the departure airport and the airline was organized by colleagues from Ahlers China. Three 18-meter trailers were used for the delivery to the airport. 

Multi-Modal Transport

With railway deliveries to CIS countries under pressure due to limited capacity, uncertain schedules, and some very heavy lifts and oversized cargo simply can not be moved by rail, we use our vast expertise and strong suppliers network we are offering exclusive solutions to our customers, helping them get their machines to the destination site on time!

RoRo Vessel

There are various options for the delivery of heavy machines. One of them is the RORO vessel. RORO stands for roll-on/roll-off and it means a vessel can carry wheeled cargo that is either driven on/off the ship independently or on a platform. This batch of machines is ready to get on board and travel to the port of destination. At Ahlers, we always strive to find an optimal solution for our clients.
