TransContainer and Pacific Intermodal Container launched new block train on the route Vladivostok - Ekaterinburg
JSC TransContainer jointly with LLC Pacific Intermodal Container launched new regular container train on the route Ugolnaya station of the Dalnevostochny railway to the Ekaterinburg-Tovarny station of the Sverdlovskaya railway.
The first train consisting of various cargo types comprised from the Company's own railcars with estimated length of 71 railcars departed from the Ugolnaya station on 31 March 2014 to the Ekaterinburg-Tovarny destination point. Today this service is provided on the regular basis. The estimated time of the route is 8 days.
This service alllows clients for fast delivery of cargo to Ekaterinburg. The block train service allows to sufficiently minimise the time of delivery from the Asia-Pacific regio to the European part of Russia.
China, Korea and Japan possess enough container fleet that can provide sufficient cargo shipment on the whole railway networks of Russian Federation and the CIS without overweight.
