Northwestern Russian terminal doubles capacities
The company TransContainer (part of Delo Group) has completed the renovation of its terminal at the Kirov Kotlassky station. Renovation continued from 2020 through 2022. The terminal kept operating and marshalling container trains on a regular basis throughout that period.
As a result of the renovation project, the terminal’s handling capacity has grown from 19,000 to 37,000 teu a year; the capacity of container yards has increased from 358 to 996 teu; and the total length of cargo front has gone up from 35 to 46 conventional railcars.
The terminal is located in the city of Kirov and specialises in arranging train services to China via overland border crossings. (ben)
