Ct Global Logistics pioneers first block train for Decathlon from Vietnam to France

As part of MegaLine’s intermodal solution and building on its experience with intercontinental rail service between Asia and Europe, Ct Global Logistics arranges first dedicated block train for one of the world’s largest global sporting goods retailers from Vietnam to Europe.

Hanoi, Vietnam – Today, MegaLine’s first dedicated block train from Vietnam to Europe just left Hanoi station. The twenty-three 40-foot containers are on its way to Zhengzhou, China, and from there go to Liège, Belgium directly. The train is carrying the latest products for Decathlon, one of the world’s largest sporting goods retailers, and all cargoes will be transported by trucks to their final destination in Dourges and Rouvignies, France by the end of August.

This first block train from Vietnam to Europe for Decathlon will not only achieve reliable lead times, but also provide our customer with improved visibility. This service is also driving synergies between intermodal and rail transport, adding resilience and great value for Decathlon’s supply chain.

Ct Global Logistics Global Account Director for Decathlon

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented disruptions to many industries and global supply chain. However, for the sportswear industry, it is thriving as consumers continue to spend time exercising, as outdoor individual sports and home workouts both see increased participation. Massive orders are piling up at Vietnam’s manufacturers, leading to lack of space to store products.

As Decathlonian, we engrave the mission “Make sport accessible for the many”. The COVID-19 pandemic is a challenging context but also an opportunity to prove our agility in supply chain management. Readiness to try new solutions with a can-do mindset makes us proud to bring happiness to all sport users.

Lionel Adenot,
Decathlon Vietnam Country Leader
