JSC RZD Logistics and Far East Land Bridge (FELB) have launched regular railway shipments from Dongguan (Guangdong province, China) to Vorsino (Kaluga region, Russia). Previously, the departure point of container trains from this province was the city of Guangzhou. The new service is offered at a lower cost and the terminal costs in China are subsidised.
Trains depart from Dongguan twice a week and follow the Zabaykalsk-Manchuria border-crossing point. Cargo can be transported on this train based on the aggregate principles; each client has the opportunity to place an order for the shipment of at least one container. It is also possible to deliver small and consolidated quantities of cargo. The approximate delivery time is fourteen days, the same as the service via the previous route. The range of goods of the railway service currently includes fabrics, cosmetics, floor coverings and consumer goods.
“The decision to transfer the departure point of the route to Dongguan is largely due to the possibility to provide a more favorable rate for cargo shippers and reduce their terminal expenses through subsidies. Dongguan is one of the largest industrial centers in China, thus makes it promising in terms of its cargo base. This factor made it possible not only to make the service regular, but to double the number of weekly shipments”, said Sales Director of JSC RZD Logistics Olga Stepanova.
Vorsino is a main cargo hub in Russia, nearby capital Moscow. Apart from distributing freight in other directions, the terminal functions as an inland customs clearing facility; cargo coming from China is not checked at the border, but at the receiving terminal Freight Village Vorsino. This speeds up the process at the congested border points between China and Kazakhstan.
