Minsk - Riga in 28 hours with express freight train
Latvian Railways (LDz) and Belarusian Railway have signed a memorandum on closer cooperation, offering their clients faster and more favourable cargo transport services between Minsk and Riga.
In addition, the partners agreed to develop a new offer: namely the Minsk-Riga express cargo train, which will run between the two cities in 28 hours.
The memorandum is the next step towards strengthening the position of LDz in the Belarusian transit and logistics market. Belarus is growing in significance of Belarus because of the new Silk Road. LDz's long-term goal is to ensure regular cargo movements along all key routes. (ben)
