MTS-Sport, a German producer and distributor of sporting goods, has decided to rely on transportation by train for goods manufactured in China. Over the next few weeks, the company will increase the amount of rail freight and stop using transportation by boat. Due to production delays caused by the coronavirus crisis in China and the high demand for MTS products during the crisis, MTS-Sport has decided to use the Trans-Eurasia-Express, which takes about three weeks for the delivery of the products, two weeks less than a ship. Freight costs will increase by a factor of three, but they are not going to be passed on to retailers or consumers. The company, which also owns the Schildkröt brand of table tennis equipment, has recorded rising of fitness, badminton and fun sports products.
