Export to China by Rail Becomes More Convenient
The Press Centre of the Russian Export Centre (REC) reports that REC, FESCO Transport Group, and Rail Cargo Logistics-RUS have agreed to cooperate in the sphere of developing export cargo transportation in containers from Siberian regions to China.
The parties intend to develop technologies for the delivery of non-resource-based Russian-made products by regular container trains from Novosibirsk and Krasnoyarsk to the neighbouring country via railway land border crossings, as well as via the Vladivostok Sea Trade Port, which is part of FESCO.
FESCO and Rail Cargo Logistics-RUS will determine transportation routes, as well as provide container equipment, universal fitting platforms and access to terminals. In turn, REC will promote export services and attract relevant shippers.
According to Alexander Baskakov, Director of Rail Cargo Logistics-RUS, sawn wood from Siberia makes up the bulk of exports to China and it is planned to expand the range of non-resource-based products within the framework of new services. Together with FESCO and REC, this logistics operator plans to increase the volume of Russian exports and reduce the imbalance of cargo flows between imports and exports.
Andrei Slepnev, Director General of REC, noted that businesses are increasingly interested in rail routes to China, as they save time and money compared to the maritime transport. The exports include a wide range of products, from food and household chemicals to construction materials and machine-building units. It was also previously reported that Russia and India will expand cooperation in the field of logistics.
