Russia's FESCO activates a rail service for containers between Shanghai and Moscow

Transit time is 20 days

As part of initiatives to increase transport services connecting Russia to Eastern markets, in an attempt to remedy the impossibility of exchanging goods with nations on the country's western borders as a result of sanctions imposed by the West for the invasion of Ukraine by the Moscow troops, the Russian logistics group FESCO (Far Eastern Shipping Company) has activated a rail service for containers connecting Shanghai to Moscow.

On July 3rd a first convoy with 49 containers on board FESCO 40' and two 20' departed from Minhang station in Shanghai. The trip includes a stop at the border crossing of Erlian - Zamyn Uud, between China and Mongolia, to load containers on 1520 mm gauge rolling stock, and then continue the transport to Silikatnaya station, near Moscow.

FESCO has announced that trains will depart from Shanghai twice per month, with a possible subsequent increase in frequency, and that the transit time is 20 days.
