In the framework of China International Import Expo 2021 TransContainer Freight Forwarding (Shanghai) Co. Ltd., TransContainer's subsidiary in China, signed two Memoranda of Understanding with Shanghai and Hubei Province rail platforms.
Memo with Orient Silk Road International Transport Service Inc., a Shanghai rail platform, stipulates cooperation in the sphere of rail transportations from Shanghai to Russia and backwards. Memo with Wuhan Trans Best Supply Chain Technology Co., Ltd., a Hubei Province rail platform, is aimed at partnership in multimodal transportations from Chinese ports to Russia and Europe via Russian ports of Far East. The start of cooperation is scheduled in December 2021.
"Partnership with Shanghai and Hubei Province rail platforms will enlarge our presence on Chinese market and will promote further boost of cargo transportation volume between Russia and China as well as transit cargo transportation volume. Due to cooperation with the Shanghai rail platform we will dispatch up to 3 block trains loaded with Chinese cargo a month. If trend remains positive the number of block trains can be increased up to 10-15 block trains a month", - said Vladimir Khlutkov Asia-Pacific Business Development Director.
