First Flexi-Train in Russia in operation
Russian Trans Container and divisions of Russian Railways (RZD) at Kuibyshevskaya railway arranged a train for a geared-up transportation of mineral and rape oils in flexitanks from the Republic of Tatarstan to Novorossiysk port for further dispatch to Turkey, Israel and China.
This is the first regular flexi-train of the company loaded with cargo from several regions. The train consisting of 58 units of 20-foot containers from Tatarstan, Mordovia and Udmurtia was dispatched from Nizhnekamsk station and arrived three days later at Novorossiysk port. From here, the goods were delivered abroad by sea. From March on, Trans Container intends to despatch the flexy train one or twice a month. (ben)
