PJSC TransContainer (TransContainer) has partnered with Korean-based Pantos Logistics and Polish-based PKP LHS to launch a regular multimodal service for cargo from the Republic of Korea to Poland via the Russian Far East and Ukraine.
As per the partnership, TransContainer will provide its containers along the whole route and will arrange railway transportation from the Russian Far East to the border of Poland. Pantos Logistics will ensure trucking over the Republic of Korea, as well as sea transportation and last-mile delivery in Europe. Lastly, PKP LHS will arrange cargo transportation by railways over Poland.
“Railway transportation within the framework of our new service is performed along the longest wide-gauge route in the world: in total, a block runs over more than 11 thousand kilometres,” said Vladimir Khlutkov, Director of Asia-Pacific Business Development at PJSC TransContainer.
“Single gauge transportation saves time since there is no need to perform transhipment on route till the border with the country of the destination point.”
IT developer ROLIS, part of the Global Ports Group, has previously partnered with TransContainer to implement its Conterra IT system for management of the Chita-1 container terminal. Announced in April 2021, the implementation is said to facilitate the online management of the container yard, an internet portal for the pool of road carriers and vehicle supply, and online regulation of the reception and loading of containers onto trucks and flatcars at the terminal.
