Nurminen Logistics signed a letter of intent with UTLC, the JV of the Russian, Kazakhstan and Belarussian state railways, for cooperation on the route to China.
The new, fast rail connection will run from Finland to Central China via Kazakhstan. It will shorten the transport time from Finland to China from 80 to 20 days, since container transport can be transferred from ships to railways. In addition to close cooperation with UTLC, Nurminen Logistics will open an office in Moscow on 1 September, contributing to the high-quality implementation of the new service. The first deliveries are scheduled to begin in the last quarter of 2014.
