China-Europe rail delays as borders close

A backlog of over 50 trains is clogging the China – Europe rail route known as the New Silk Road. As a result costs to ship a container to Europe are rising fast. And delays are a mater of weeks.

If this route is to be viable competition for ocean shipping it must fix the problems. are they easier to fix for rail than for ocean shipping? I’m not sure they are. Look at the trouble the Asia-US-Europe land bridge service has had in Chicago.
