FESCO Transportation Group (FESCO) has launched a new regular rail service from St. Petersburg to Chita and Blagoveshchensk via Moscow.
Thanks to the use of this service, customers of the group can deliver goods to the Transbaikal Territory and the Amur region via the Russian capital.
“Container trains will depart once a week from one of the sea terminals in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region and will arrive at the terminal and logistics center in Beliy Rast in the Moscow region where some containers will be quickly reloaded on FESCO trains destined for Chita and Blagoveshchensk,” FESCO said in a statement.
Total transit time to Chita station will be 12 days, it will take 14 days to reach Blagoveshchensk station.
The first train loaded with 56 containers left the Sea Fish Port Terminal on February 7.
The service is focused on the transportation of imported and domestic goods produced in the North-Western region of Russia.
FESCO customers also have access to regular shipments from St. Petersburg to Vladivostok, Novosibirsk, Khabarovsk, Irkutsk and Moscow.
In September 2021, FESCO and DP World Russia agreed to work together to further develop projects at the Commercial Port of Vladivostok (CPV).
