Acer to ship 40,000 notebooks by rail to Europe

Posted on Thursday, September 22 2011 @ 22:32:08 CEST by


DigiTimes has an update about Acer's railroad laptop shipments to Europe. The site reports Acer will ship 40,000 notebooks by railroad from Chongqing, China to Duisburg, Germany. The shipment is estimated to arrive in Europe in two weeks and is the first of its kind. Initially the company plans to do one trip every 1-2 weeks, but as the logistics system matures this will gradually be increased to one trip per day.
The trip will mark the first railroad crossing from China to Europe, while opening up a brand new logistics system for the notebook industry.

...

Currently, 90% of notebook supplies are from China and are shipped either through marine or air routes. For Europe, most notebook makers in Chongqing transport products to harbors in China's coastal areas then ship to Europe by sea, but with Acer starting to ship products by rail, more brand vendors are expected to follow suit in the future.
Full details over here.
