TransContainer offers a rail alternative

On October 28, a container train with coiled steel for a local processing plant arrived in Kaliningrad from the seaport of Pervomaysky (Vladivostok).

The volume of cargo delivered was 96 twenty-foot containers (96 TEU) and the total travel time was 13 days.

A new logistics project for multimodal transportation was developed and implemented by PJSC TransContainer together with the Kaliningrad Railway. The cargo was transported to Vladivostok from the Chinese port of Tianjin by a bulk ship, and then, as part of a container train, proceeded along the railway network of Russia, Latvia and Lithuania to Kaliningrad.

The project also provides the return loading of containers with products of Kaliningrad enterprises and their shipment to consignees in central regions of Russia.

“ Transportation of imported cargo is organized using the equipment and the Company's terminal at the Kaliningrad-Sorting station. The multimodal route was offered to the client as an alternative to the option of transportation from China via the deep sea and has the advantage over the traditional route in substantial time savings, ” said Dmitry Melnichuk, director of the TransContainer branch on the October Railway.
