Global Ports Launch Container Train Link from VSC in Far East to Yanino Logistics Park, St. Petersburg
Global Ports has launched a regular container train service from the Vostochnaya Stevedoring Company (VSC) terminal in the Primoriye Region to Yanino Logistics Park (“Yanino”), St. Petersburg, as part of the development of the Group’s railway transportation service portfolio.
The trains will depart from Nakhodka-Vostochnaya station for Zanevsky Post station on a weekly basis. The travel time by rail is 11 days.
The new service is designed for the swift delivery of industrial and consumer goods to the northwest of Russia that have been shipped from the Asia-Pacific region to VSC by regular sea lines.
At Yanino, as part of the cargo handling services, clients are offered customs clearance (where required), storage facilities, and further loading into containers or onto road vehicles. Future planned services will include cargo marking at the customs warehouse.
The first train on this service shipped 145 TEU of goods from South Korea.
Brian Bitsch, Chief Commercial Officer of Global Ports noted: “The new service will enable our importer clients to reduce delivery times to 25%, on average, of the times of the alternative route via the Suez Canal. Clients will also be better able to manage their logistics costs, given that rail transportation avoids currency fluctuations.”
This service is the latest to be added to the network of domestic and transit routes of regular container trains formed by VSC and shipped from Nakhodka Vostochnaya station.
