DHL Launches First Door-to-Door Service Linking Ulaanbaatar to Tianjin

DHL, the world’s leading logistics company, celebrates five years of operations in fast-growing Mongolia with the launch of a new rail service — the Genghis Khan Connection, a scheduled tri-weekly cross border rail solution available during the high season from April to October linking Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia by rail to Tianjin, China and out to the rest of the world. DHL Global Forwarding is the only global logistics provider in Mongolia to offer scheduled services and reliable solutions to congested routes and complex customs processes.

The 30-day Genghis Khan Connection leverages Mongolia’s improving infrastructure to help customers avoid peak season congestion at regional border towns, seaports and airports which can sometimes substantially delay shipments. The service dovetails DHL Global Forwarding’s existing global network of connections to provide a new viable transport option for businesses particularly in consumer goods, fashion and accessories and equipment, machines and spare parts. Rail being a greener alternative to air and road options, the Genghis Khan Connection also helps reduce customers’ CO2 footprint.

Kelvin Leung, CEO, North Asia Pacific, DHL Global Forwarding, said: “Despite having vast economic potential, Mongolia has hitherto suffered from limited routing options that include Russia and China for cargo from Europe, America and Asia. This has led to unreliable delivery, seasonal congestion that can delay shipments by up to 21 days as well as result in higher costs.”
