Direct Vietnam - Moscow service introduced
Trans Container has launched regular service to ship consumer goods from Vietnam to Russia via the Zabaikalsk border-crossing point. The overland journey covering more than 10,000 km from Hanoi to the Moscow region takes about 35 days.
This is Trans Container's first direct railway service from Vietnam to Moscow, the company said. It is intended for the transport of tea, coffee and clothes for further sale in retail chains. The company plans to dispatch at least two block trains a month along this route. (ben)
