Rail is on the up: rail transport between China and Europe is growing in importance

5 June 2019

At the Transport Logistics Trade Fair 2019 in Munich, KaiserCommunication GmbH organised the press conference for the United Transport and Logistics Company – Eurasian Rail Alliance (UTLC ERA) – an important logistics player on the New Silk Road. 

The United Transport Logistics Company – Eurasian Rail Alliance (UTLC ERA) is a service provider for the transport of containers by rail between Europe and China. UTLC ERA was founded by the Russian Railways RZhD, the Belarusian Railways and the Kazakhstan Railway Company, with each of the three founding partners holding an equal share in the company. It transports over 76 percent of transit freight on regular container trains between China and Europe and vice versa on 1520 mm broad-gauge tracks via Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus. UTLC ERA offers transport services between Europe and China on more than 50 routes. The most important hubs in Germany are Munich, Hamburg, Duisburg and Nuremberg. 

Alexey Grom, the President of UTLC ERA, informed the media representatives who were present about the ever closer working relationships with European transport and logistics centres and went on to present the advantages of rail transport along the New Silk Road. 

The Transport Logistics Trade Fair takes places in Munich every two years and is one of the largest specialist trade fairs worldwide in this sector. All the important companies in this sector are represented with their innovations at this trade fair. In 2019, there were more than 2,000 exhibitors from 60 countries on a floor space of 115,000 m2

It is an established part of the services provided by KaiserCommunication to look after the press and public relations work of clients at trade fairs. We organise press conferences and conversations with individual journalists for our clients. We also disseminate press releases and coordinate press enquiries. Since the end of 2018, our agency has been responsible for the press work of UTLC ERA in Western Europe. In addition to the Transport Logistics Trade Fair in Munich, these responsibilities include working closely with the national and international media at specialist conferences and at trade fairs in Vienna, Paris, and Verona. 

On request, we also work with partners to design and create stands for our clients at trade fairs and we staff these stands during the trade fair with our own employees. Our agency also organises seminars, workshops, and discussions with trade fair delegates.
