UWC’s railway operator UNICON 1520 has signed an agreement with Avestra Group, a major supplier of Russian petrochemicals to foreign markets, on cooperation and joint work in transport logistics for liquid chemical cargoes and LPG.
Under the agreement, the partners will work together to address a number of tasks, including transport of liquefied hydrocarbon gases, methanol and other liquid chemical cargoes using new generation tank cars and tank containers. Transport modes will be adapted to meet specific needs.
“We are focused on long-term cooperation with The Avestra Group. The projects, which Avestra implements, are of great interest to us. Responding to complex logistics challenges on export routes is our priority.
