RZD Holding and Russian Export Centre dispatch first export container shipment from Vorsino to China

RU EN

The Russian Railways' Holding and the Joint Stock Company Russian Export Centre (REC) have dispatched the first export container shipment of non-primary products from Vorsino in Russia's Kaluga region to China.

This first consignment was carried out as part of REC's project to support non-primary export-oriented companies in transporting their freight to China.

RZD Logistics, a subsidiary of Russian Railways, was the service's logistic operator, while the rolling stock and containers were provided by PJSC TransContainer, technological support by Russian Railways and customer support by Russian Export LLC.

Containers with food and equipment will travel via the border crossing at Zabaikalsk to the port of Dalian and Shilong Railway Station in China's Guangdong Province.

RZD Logistics puts the cost of delivery of a universal forty-foot container to Dalian at USD 2,600 and to Shilong at USD 3,200.

The minimum travel time is 14 days.

It is planned to make this a regular service in the future, but the exact timetable of shipments will depend on the volumes of non-primary freight traffic for export.

The Russian Railways' Holding is ready to offer Russian exporters new logistics routes to China with the regularity that shippers will need.

At the terminal in Vorsino, Russian exporters can obtain comprehensive services for customs clearance, Rosselkhoznadzor's veterinary and phytosanitary control and freight consolidation.

The consignment within the framework of REC's project makes possible deliveries to the People's Republic of China 2-3 times faster than by the sea route, but at a comparable cost.

Such an arrangement allows exporters to allocate their financial resources more rationally and simplify significantly the freight processing procedure.

The proposed options for destination stations take into account the expanding geography of deliveries to China.
