FCS' Train Comes In

Those of you dying to know what happened to the Fujitsu Siemens Computer train, carrying IT products from China to Germany, will be relieved to know that it arrived dead on time at Hamburg on Monday.

It's no mean feat, given that the company's logistic partner, DB Schenker, had to liaise with rail operators in Poland, Belarus, Russia, Mongolia and China to coordinate the journey.

Now that the route has proved to be a success FCS plans to start regular train supplies. With each trip saving 2200 tons (or is that tonnes?) of greenhouse gas emissions compared with air transport it's both environmentally friendly and cost-effective.

Lets hope they can solve the problem of the cold weather, which is too extreme to ship these sorts of products in winter.
