tue 12 sep 2017, 15:46
The first container of goods from Arnhem has recently departed for ‘the new Silk Road’ to Wuhan in China. On board the train include coffee beans from coffee roasting plant Peeze from Arnhem. The beans have been purchased by Wuhan Asia Europe Logistics (WAE Logistics). This company operates the freight train connection between Wuhan and Duisburg, but also buys goods and sells them in Wuhan and central China.
Peeze’s coffee is part of a larger shipment and marks the latest step in the connection of Gelderland on the Silk Road, which, partly thanks to the long-standing sister relationships of Gelderland, Arnhem and Apeldoorn, leads to economic effects.
