Service features
- This service is a multimodal service for transporting cargo by rail between Kunming, China, and Vientiane, Laos, and then by truck from Vientiane to Thailand and other neighboring ASEAN countries across the international border with Thailand's Nong Khai Province.

- This service provides a reliable lead time of five days.

- This eco-friendly express transport service reduces CO2 emissions by using rail transport and shortens lead time by 0.5 day compared to conventional transport by cross-border trucks only.

- This service can be used as a BCP transport mode when ocean cargo transport is disrupted.

Background to service development
Following the successful launch of a Nanning-Hanoi railway, a new China-Laos railway connecting Kunming and Vientiane was opened on December 3, 2021. Cross-border trucking had theretofore constituted the mainstream of ground transport connecting China and ASEAN, but NX China has developed a multimodal transport service using rail transport that avoids congestion on the China-Laos border, shortens lead times and enables bulk transport by using the new connecting railway to Vientiane. Trial transport has already been carried out from Kunming to Ayutthaya, Thailand.

The NX Group, formerly the Nippon Express Group which renamed its corporate group name following transition to a holding company system in January, will continue meeting the diversifying logistics needs of customers and creating new ideas and value that expand the field of logistics, as advocated in its corporate philosophy.
