The President of Russian Railways Oleg Belozerov has signed a multilateral agreement with six other partners to deepen cooperation on the organisation of container trains between China and Europe.

According to the document, it is planned to increase jointly traffic volumes, intensify efforts to create logistics infrastructure facilities, improve the organisation of transportation and introduce new technologies to reduce travel time.

In particular, the parties intend to support the development of competitive through-rates for freight transportation on container trains between China and Europe within the framework of their respective countries' national legislation and make efforts to create uniform service standards.

In addition, the parties aim actively to develop new transport and logistics products, facilitate the organisation of the transport of cross-border goods based on electronic commerce, postal items and goods requiring controlled temperatures in refrigerated containers.
