Volvo Begins Shipping S90 From China To Europe

Volvo is beginning to shift production of its S90 sedan from Sweden to China. Although the automaker is doing something no other automaker has done thus far: it’s shipping the cars to Europe via train instead of ship.

Ultimately all S90’s will be produced at the company’s Daqing, China assembly plant. However, to cut down on shipping times the company has worked a deal to have them shipped via rail from Daqing to Zeebrugge in Belgium. They will make the trip about once a week, each time carrying up to 225 cars to keep Europeans supplied with S90’s.

Volvo is owned by Geely Holdings, a Chinese automaker. The company is planning to continue expanding its production in China and exports to other markets.

    ^ What's disappointing about it? don't like trains?

    I'm wondering if they shipped all the S90's for the U.S to Sweden first (baptism/finishingschool/qualitycheck) THEN sent them on to us,

    if there'd be much less brouhaha?
