Q&A
What are the advantages that FESCO Europe train service has over the other services on the market: multimodal via Saint-Petersburg, TCR, TMR, TMGR?
Shipping to Korea or Japan means that first leg of the shipment should be done by sea leg anyway. In case if you use TSLB, there's only one THC in VVO port from the vessel to the railcar and the train is dispatched to the border with Europe.

If you use TMR or TMGR, you need to make THC in ports of China and another one THC at the border between China and Russia/Mongolia, where the capacity of station is very limited, which can cause congestions.

Other multimodal services have 2 sea legs. After the second one St. Petersburg – European Port you still need to use railway connection from POD to the destination within Europe. So an additional leg is still needed.
Regarding Moscow transit heading to Brest, which station would take the charge for transit operation?
Such rail connection is needed only for single container shipments. It's done at the station of Moscow area –Bekasovo station or Vekovka station. For both options (single container or block-train) customs transit for CIS part is done only once – in Vladivostok.
In case of transit customs, can it be finished at VVO or there will be another customs process in Moscow again?
There's no need to make additional customs transit in Moscow. The documents are issued in Vladivostok for transit VVO – Brest exp. Station, in EU we issue T1 transit document.
Regarding Customs clearance at VVO, it seems that it is essential to check items and documents prior to shipping. What do we need to do?
Provide a full set of necessary documents before container arrival to Vladivostok.

Arrange telex release of container before container arrival to POD.

Organize correct container's sealing (in accordance with FESCO recommendation).

Preliminary check commercial documents correction:

  • The name of the shipper, cnee, indicated in invoice, packing list, BL, should have the same spelling
  • Every cargo name, HS code should have detailed information of price, weight, package (breakdown)
  • Calculation of total price, weight, package should be correct
  • Quantity of packages, gross and net weight, indicated in invoice, packing list and BL should be the same
  • Cargо name should have Russian translation in case of short name of cargo, indicated in CIPL, or HS code is not exist in Russian classification
  • Provide with CIPL in Word, Excel format

Preliminary provide the pictures of correct loading of hazardous cargo (in accordance with requirements of Notice for hazardous cargo).
As I know, other Europe train services, like TCR and TMR, don't request Russian translation, but VVO ask Russian translation sometimes. It appears to be rather inconvenient, so what is FESCO's strategy to diminish translation matter?
Vladivostok customs office is a part of Far Eastern Customs Department same as Russian customs offices for TMR or TMGR. So, all the requirements of TSLB, TMR, TMGR are same for all the routes and Russian translation is needed.
The block schedule does not match the actual dispatch date from VVO. What is the reason? And what is FESCO further solution?
Schedule of all FESCO vessels and block trains is available on the website.
Do you have any agency in Europe who can settle "door" delivery?
Sure, FESCO has its own company in Europe, that is FESCO North-West Europe.
How many volumes are required to arrange direct block train from Vladivostok to destination in Europe?
Minimum number of containers for arranging dedicated block-train is 31 containers.
What documents are required for transit via the Russian Federation?
Same as for other shipments via Vladivostok. B/L, invoice, packing list, instruction for railway bill, certificates, MSDS.
China-Europe railway is facing port congestion problem at Malaszewicze of Poland. Are you facing the same problem?
TSLB train is transshipped from Russian train to European in Brest, not Malaszewicze. Brest station is well developed in order to avoid congestion.
Is cargo tracing possible in real time? How often is information updated?
Tracing is automatically updated 2-3 times a day.
The freight structure is too complicated compared to other companies (ex, to MOSCOW has THC, to CIS has not THC = need same freight structure).
TSLB service is available in FOR/FOT/Door terms
Is this transit service made together with Russian Railways?
Yes, TSLB is arranged with Russian Railways support, jointly with Russian Railways Logistics.
Can I book DG cargo via Ji-Rum-Gil service to north Europe?
Yes, you can. Please provide MSDS to your customer service manager.
How many days does it take to arrange transportation from Busan to north Europe by Ji-Rum-Gil service?
Starting from 19 days depending on the destination.
Is the guaranteed lead time always secured? If not, is there any compensation?
FESCO express service has such a guarantee from our side.
FESCO's targeting lead time to Europe is very attractive. But when volume is increasing, we can expect WAGON SHORTAGE. Is there any solution?
FESCO is increasing fleet of railcars year by year taking into account our customers' needs.
What is the main advantage of your new service?
TSLB is the fastest way to deliver containers from Korea/Japan to Europe and back.
