Russia to containerise postal items
Russian Railways (RZD) and Russian Post have agreed to jointly develop logistics services for the containerisation and delivery of postal items and products from online stores, retail chains and small and medium-sized businesses.
To this end, the companies plan to organise multimodal services for Russian Post shipments on domestic and international routes using container trains running on a timetable. The partners are also reviewing options for special international container trains for the transport of e-commerce goods. (ben)
