Russia, China to boost freight rail traffic

Russian Railways (RZD) said on Friday it has agreed with its Chinese partners to gradually increase the number of freight trains through connecting stations.

“In April, rail cargo transfer [between Russia and China] increased by 27% month-on-month in Zabaykalsk, and by 10% in Grodekovo,” RZD said, adding that “Export cargo transportation to China through Kazakhstan and Mongolia is also growing.” - услуги фрилансеров от 500 руб.

The company noted that in addition to growing volumes of coal, others types of cargo have been sent via the Baikal-Amur (BAM) and Trans-Siberian railways. The number of applications submitted for transportation over these railways increased by almost 30% compared to last year. In the first quarter of 2022, more than 3,500 heavy and 1,700 connected trains carried cargo via the strategic route in the supply chains of the two nations. The volume of additional cargo exceeded 6 million tons, RZD said.
