The Company

 

OUR HISTORY

FELB is the culmination of a seven year project to establish a railway route for containers between Asia and Europe, based on the Trans-Siberian Railway. It has taken us several years of work and negotiation to make the necessary agreements and put in place the logistics and security to provide this as a viable and quicker alternative to the existing ocean route.

 

Our special agreement with our initial Russian partner TransContainer enabled us to commence with the first pilot shipments in 2007. Over the years FELB became owner of more than 7,000 containers and increased the frequency of train departures from 1 per week to 6 per week. As a result of this also two special train operating centres - Block-Train Centres (BTC) – have been established, one in Asia and one in Europe. Over 100 employees ensure an efficient operation and sale of the service. FELB manages several offices in China and Russia – strategically located along the whole route – completing the system around the railway connection.

OUR BUSINESS MODEL

FELB offers an alternative to the sea freight and air freight between China, South Korea and Europe in both ­directions. The company's unique transport product consists of a door-to-door service including the provision of containers.

Well-known companies like BMW, Audi, Volkswagen, Samsung and LG, are continuously using this transport product. Potential clients can easily adapt their current logistics supply chain to the railway solution, and to assure themselves of real savings.

In terms of benefits arising from a rapid transit time, which is cut by half compared to the sea freight, a substantial cash flow advantage , greater convenience and flexibility to cargo owners (short term capital commitment/smaller interest payments) is secured. Additionally, the time to market is considerably reduced. FELB’s service is therefore especially targeted at clients with high-value goods or urgent shipments, located in areas easily connected to the rail, as congestion in and around Chinese/European­ ports is avoided, allowing a direct and fast door-to-door connection.

Departures are carried out almost daily, but can be adapted to the client’s need if block-train ­volumes are provided. Per container a gross weight of up to 30 tons is allowed. The most frequent cargo groups vary from raw materials, textiles to automotive parts, solar panels, and all kinds of high-tech devices.

In addition, FELB’s ­business model incorporates the philosophy of environment protection, given the growing importance of conforming to the guidelines of green logistics.
