RZD Logistics and FESCO launched from Pusan the first container service that arrived at Vladivostok Port by maritime transport and was delivered to Brzeg Dolny railway station in Poland via the Trans-Siberian railway.
The cargo was transported by truck from Brzeg Dolny to client’s warehouse Wroclaw. The total transit time was 21 days, which is two times faster than by maritime route through the Suez Canal.
In the frame of the joint service FESCO provides sea and truck delivery, port handling and container fleet, while RZD Logistics is responsible for rail transport.
The new service serves for transport of different cargoes, including car parts and equipment, from the Republic of Korea to the European countries.
“Europe is one of the biggest consumer markets in the world, there are located many high value-added products’ manufactures, components and parts for which are delivered from the countries of Asia and Pacific. Delivery time is significant for them, and given logistics, the route through the Russian Far East is the most attractive in terms of saving time and managing sustainable deliveries”, said Alexander Isurin, the President of Fesco.
In May the companies launched Trans-Siberian LandBridge service by dispatching a test container from the Japanese port Yokohama to Wroclaw, Poland. Within the framework of test transport the companies worked out the delivery technology to make the transit service from Asia and Pacific to Europe through the Russian Far East and the Trans-Siberian railway available to customers in this year.
