The Russian Export Center Group joined forces with Rail Cargo Logistics-RUS to dispatch a container train from Ufa to Chengdu (Sichuan Province, China), which continues REC's systemic work on improving transportation of Russian-made goods to China by rail.
41 forty-feet containers loaded of chipboards were shipped from Ufa. The expected delivery time is 14 days, including phyto-sanitary control.
"Based on our export routes we can evaluate development of rail transport to China and identify challenges that exporters and transport companies face when delivering Russian goods to Chinese consumers. This, in turn, will allow us to build more efficient export railway routes, including to other countries"
In April 2017, REC joined forces with Russian Railways Logistics and Vorsino Freight Village to launch the first export route from Vorsino (Kaluga Oblast) to Chinese Dalian and Shilong. In September the second route, from Vorsino to Chengdu, was opened, and agreements were reached with the administration of Chengdu (China), China (Sichuan) Free Zone Chengdu and Qingbaijiang Railway Port Zone on cooperation and development of new routes to China’s promising region.
