Since 1990, economic reasons have shifted the bulk of consumer goods production, like manufacturing of electronics or clothing, from Europe to Asia, and particularly to Chinese factories. The overwhelming majority of this trade lane is served by ever-growing ocean container carriers, supported by air freight for extremely valuable and/or time-sensitive cargo. However, rail services along the New Silk Road are increasingly becoming a serious logistics alternative to these two. Turning innovative solutions, such as high-speed automated trains, into reality will further add to their attractiveness.
