New Silk Road Network’s member Logfret SAS is an international freight forwarding company from France with roots going back to 1974. Since then, they have established 190 offices and agencies in over 65 countries offering air, sea, land, and rail transportation. Logfret defines themselves as a global digital logistics company, that has self-developed a software system called NEOLink.

Our team had the pleasure of talking with both Mr. Alain Chevrier, Rail Freight Manager and Ms. Anna Neo, Marketing Communication Director about the journey of the company from the 1970s to the present, the impact of being a family company in a rapidly changing world, the advantages of the NEOLink system during the Covid-19 period, their sustainability consciousness and finally, their foresight about a promising future of rail freight. Through the conversation we discovered how Logfret has masterfully integrated technology into their logistics operations, paving a new way for rail freight.

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.
