UTLC JSC, jointly with Belintertrans-Germany LLC, with assistance of the Belorussian Railways Baranovichi Division introduced an additional container train route via Kuznitsa/ Bruzgi border crossing, in connection with the increased cargo transport by accelerated container trains en route China/ Europe/ China.
The estimated time on the route from the departure station to the destination station will be 14 days, as before. The operator of this container train in Europe is Belintertrans-Germany LLC and in 1,520 mm territory, UTLC JSC.
This container route will enable to increase the throughput of railway border crossings between Poland and Belarus.
As preliminarily estimated, the container transportation volume from China to Europe via Kuznitsa/Bruzgi border crossing may come to approx. 30 trains on a monthly basis with subsequent increase.
In July 2017, the first container train departed from the Lodz to Chengdu Station in this route. The container train has 41 40” containers with assembled cargo. The train passed freely to Bruzgi station where transshipment into broad-track railcars was carried out promptly and without any delays.
