From China to Austria by rail
RZD Logistics, Sinotrans, and Far East Land Bridge (FELB) have launched a new train container service that runs between the Chinese Shenyang and the Austrian Enns via the border crossing in Zabaykalsk.
Traction via the wide-gauge network is provided by RZD Logistics, while across China and Europe by FELB.
The first set, loaded with industrial raw materials, left China on 14 March, arriving in Austria on 1 April.
"Expanding the geography of transportation is one of our priorities for the development of the company in the container transit segment. That is our first transit service from Shenyang to Austria. We have long been working on traditional routes for the company from this province to Hamburg, Duisburg, Małaszewicze, Warsaw and Milan, so adding Enns to the list of delivery cities is a logical development of a successful service," Dmitry Murev, General Director, RZD Logistics, commented.
