Speeding up intermodal transport through Vladivostok
Russian Railways (RZD) and FESCO are launching a service for electronic document flow for intermodal shipments of freight through the commercial port of Vladivostok (VMTP) (Russia), which reduces transit time by 4 days, that is, from 5 days to 21 hours.
The first container freight shipping with the documents processed electronically was made on 4 September 2019, in VMTP. In the first phase of implementing the Intertran project the service will allow processing electronic documents for imports, then it will expand to the formalities for shipments of transit cargo from APAC countries to Europe.
