This year, UTLC intends to increase the scope of cargo transport on the route China – Europe – China, including through Kaliningrad region. Taking into account the existing infrastructure restrictions at the intersection with the railways of the European Union, one of the most important directions in the development of transit services is the implementation of the project of multimodal container transport through the ports of Kaliningrad region.
