China's rail links to improve

One of the worlds leading shipping companies believes it is closing in on a deal to improve the rail links from Chinas ports.

APL, which provides transport services to more than 140 countries and pioneered double-stacked freight trains in the US, is in talks with the Chinese government.

Global scrap prices have been hit hard by the Far Eastern countrys decision to stop importing metal while it moves vast quantities through its creaking infrastructure.

But APL managing director Peter Hall told delegates at the Bureau of International Recycling Convention that moves were underway to improve the situation.

Hall said: We have had many discussions with the Chinese authorities to improve railways to and from their ports. These are developed talks.
