FESCO Transportation Group (FESCO) has launched a new regular rail service from St. Petersburg to Chita and Blagoveshchensk via Moscow.
Through the use of this service, customers of the group can deliver goods to the Trans-Baikal Territory and the Amur Region via the Russian capital.
“Container trains will depart once a week from one the marine terminals of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region and will arrive at the terminal and logistics centre Beliy Rast in the Moscow region where some containers will be promptly re-loaded to FESCO trains destined for Chita and Blagoveshchensk,” said FESCO in a statement.
Total transit time to the station in Chita will be 12 days, it will take 14 days to reach the station in Blagoveshchensk.
The first train loaded with 56 containers departed from Terminal Sea Fish Port on 7 February.
The service is focused on transporting both imported and domestic goods that are 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.
Back in September 2021, FESCO and DP World Russia agreed to work together to further develop projects at the Commerical Port of Vladivostok (CPV).
