New Silk Road Network's partner Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven JadeWeserPort from Germany has been granted the PERS (Port Environmental Review System) certification for the fourth time, for the successful environmental management at Germany’s only deep-water container port. A combination of organisational, legal and structural measures, all of which are summarised in the current environmental report of the JadeWeserPort-Realisierungsgesellschaft (JWPR), forms the basis of the certificate awarded by the Brussels-based organisation EcoPorts. Holger Banik, Managing Director of the JWPR, and Silke Lüders, Environmental Coordinator of the JWPR, are very pleased about this, as the newly acquired certificate is considered international recognition for the diverse sustainability initiatives at the JadeWeserPort.

New Silk Road Network’s partner RailGate Europe is a unique organization that tells the success story of friends from Europe coming together to challenge convention by offering containerized rail freight services between Europe and China. Leveraging one of the widest networks of partners for moving LCL and FCL rail freight shipments, they have coined themselves as the 1st Non-Train Operating Common Carrier (NTOCC) and continue to push boundaries.

Our team had the pleasure of talking with Tadas Abramavičius, Co-founder of RailGate Europe and Co-Owner of Baltic Consol Line, Julija Sciglaite, CEO of RailGate Poland, Frank Müller, CEO of RailGate Germany, and Simona Banelytė, Head of Marketing. We learn about how the four founding companies initially came together, their focus on integrating technology into their internal and external operations, and the current turmoil in the rail freight industry. While a recovery to the high demands witnessed in rail freight last year may not be possible in the short term, we are delighted to learn that service reliability and volumes are on the rise, signalizing a bright future.

Safety on the road comes first and New Silk Road Network's member PRIMUM is well aware of that fact. As a road freight specialist with over 25 years of experience, compliance is key. In April, PRIMUM successfully passed the audit again for compliance with the international standard TAPA TSR (Truck Security Requirements). Their Level 1 and Level 3 certificates confirm compliance with the standards of work aimed at ensuring the safety and security of transported goods.
