FESCO, RZD Logistics add hazardous cargo transportation option

FESCO Transportation Group (FESCO) and RZD Logistics JSC (a subsidiary of Russian Railways OJSC) are expanding the range of goods for transportation from Asia-Pacific countries to Europe and are now offering to transport hazardous cargo.

Containers with acids, used in the pharmaceuticals and industry, and with spare parts and various equipment were delivered from Qingdao (China) and Busan (Korea) respectively to the Commercial port of Vladivostok (CPV, is FESCO’s entity) by regular FESCO service, where they were loaded on an expedited container train that arrived at Brest on 10 March, Vladivostok-Brest. The total transit time was 12 days.

Containers were then reloaded on the rolling-stock and after arriving at the destination were delivered by truck to the warehouses of the clients in Poland, Belgium and Germany.

“Hazardous cargo transportation from Asia-Pacific countries to Europe is quite a promising area of business. Today, when hazardous cargo is transported by sea, we are ready to offer the market a tried-and-true service within Trans-Siberian LandBridge, ensuring both cargo safety and delivery time double reduction,” noted Dmitry Murev, general director of RZD Logistics JSC.

At the end of May 2019, the companies launched Trans-Siberian LandBridge service, and at the same time sent a test container from the Japanese port of Yokohama to Wroclaw in Poland. At the end of July, the geography of the service was expanded, enabling transportation from the Republic of Korea to Europe.
