PJSC TransContainer develops new domestic and import transportation services
PJSC TransContainer enlarges the number of regular services for customers in Russia and in China.
A block train has been launched from Zibo (Shandong Province, China) to Ekaterinburg (Sverdlovskaya Railway) through Zabaikailsk border-crossing point.
The first train started from China on May 22, 2019 and arrived at the station of destination on May 30, 2019. The transit time reduced in compare with single dispatches and it became 8 days now. The train consisted of 134 TEUs loaded with consumer electronics.
Block trains on that route are supposed to become regular. A new service will help customers to save transit time and cargo delivery expenses. For regional consignors it will become a driver for routing export flows from Urals to countries of Asia-Pacific region.
The most important criteria for competitive performance of the railway transport is delivery time, this is why we place priority on formation of block trains. Our goal is to widen routing and this project is just one more step to it, Kirill Kudryavtsev, director of PJSC TransContainer Branch at Zabaikalskaya Railway said.
Moreover the first block train from Bezymyanka station (Kuybyshevskaya Railway) to Ugolnaya station (Dalnevostochnaya Railway) started on May 30, 2019.
The train consisted of 68 TEUs with consumer goods produced in Samara, Penza, Orenburg regions and the Republic of Tatarstan.
The transit time is estimated to be 9 days and the route length is more than 8 thousand kilometers. It will take almost a month to deliver a single container using this route. Due to a new service small, medium and large enterprises will benefit from reduced time and logistics spends. In future we schedule export transportations which will let to organize multimodal cargo delivery to countries of Asia-Pacific Region.
In both cases PJSC TransContainer acts as an operator providing its own terminal infrastructure, flatcars and containers.
