RZD and Russian Post extend cooperation
Russian Post and FPC, a subsidiary of Russian Railways (RZD), have entered into an agreement on running mail vans with passenger and post & baggage trains for the next three years.
The companies plan to organise multimodal services for Russian Post deliveries along domestic and international routes using container trains running on a regular timetable.
RZD and Russian Post are also currently working on options to launch special international container trains for the delivery of e-commerce goods. New technologies will optimise costs and increase the speed and quality of deliveries, RZD said. (ben)
