“Ab Ovo Container Management System for China Railways launched on 1st of July”

Capelle aan den IJssel, The Netherlands, July 12th 2017:  The Container Management System (CMS) for China Railway, which is jointly developed by Railink International Logistics (called hereafter Railink) and Ab Ovo, has been officially launched on the 1st of July 2017.

This CMS which fills the blank spots of container management for domestic railways, indicates that the China-EU railway express business becomes more specialized, standardized and offers better service on the One Belt / One Road transport destination.

As an innovative business and software solutions provider in the logistics industry, Ab Ovo customized a standard rail transport system, that fully satisfies Railink’s current business model. The first phase of this container management system has been completed, supporting the container leasing, container repositioning, and container inventory management for Railink. Furthermore, it also provides the visualization of container information for the “One Belt / One Road” operations, which resulted in greatly improved quality of data and service to the customers.


Railink provides railway FCL and LCL services between China, Europe, Russia, Mongolia and Central Asian countries. Railink has established its corporate headquarter in Shanghai, with 7 branch offices across the major cities in China. This company has transported 6000 TEU and shipped them on 400 routes since the start of this year. Railink established its service network in Western and Central China. With the overseas network integration, Railink is able to provide end-to-end international logistics services.
