FESCO Transported Grain from Siberia to China Using Intermodal Container Service
As part of development of containerized grain transportation, FESCO Transportation Group has delivered 500 tons of grain from Krasnoyarsk to the Chinese port of Ningbo with FESCO's intermodal service.
The transportation scheme included transportation of 22 containers with grain from Achinsk (Krasnoyarsk region) to Krasnoyarsk by road, from Kransoyarsk to Vladivostok by FESCO Yenisei Shuttle, and from Vladivostok to the destination port by regular sea line FCDL. The transit time was 20 days. As part of the pilot shipment, the Group's specialists provided a full range of related works, including customs clearance and receipt of all the documents required for export shipment.
FESCO began to develop containerized grain transportation in summer 2018, launching delivery from Siberia to the Far East by its own regular trains and to Kamchatka and Magadan region though sea coastal lines. Since opening this line, 4 thousand tons of grain were transported within Russia. Launching of integrated services for international routes will ensure regular delivery of grain from Russia to countries of the Asia-Pacific region in the shortest possible time.
