The Nizhny Novgorod branch of JSC Russian Railways Logistics, the Nizhny Novgorod Agency for Transport Services of JSC Federal Cargo Company and the Gorky Territorial Center for Corporate Transport Services of JSC Russian Railways organized the transportation of the first train as part of the specialized service Cargo Express for expedited delivery of timber cargo from Gorky iron stations roads to the People's Republic of China.
The new service involves the sending of trains from the Gorky, Kirov and Izhevsk regions of the Railways to China through the border crossing Grodekovo - Suifinhe in the Far East. The consolidation of forest cargo and the final formation of “Freight Express” takes place at the Yar station in the Udmurt Republic. The launch of the first “Freight Express” took place on December 2, and the train successfully arrived at the destination station on the 14th. The second accelerated train departed in the direction of Grodekovo on December 15. At the initial stage, the trains with the forest will be sent as they are filled, but in the future the shipments will be sent on a regular basis.
As part of a joint logistics service, Russian Railways Logistics JSC consolidates applications and provides clients with comprehensive transport and logistics services. JSC FGK provides a discount for Freight Express for various types of rolling stock, and the Gorky TTsFTO, in turn, organizes and provides a tight schedule during the entire route of accelerated trains.
