Due to high demand at the borders to Mongolia as well as to Kazakhstan, Chinese railways decided to cut most of the planned train departures in direction to Europe for November and December. As this is effecting all platforms, the expected backlog for December will tighten the available capacity furthermore.

Becasue of the imbalances transporting between Europe and Asia, there is also a serious shortage in available equipment like container and wagons. Therefore a pre-booking of at least 14 days in advanced is highly recommended.
