Russia and Japan launched test shipments along the Trans-Siberian Railway
In Japan, trial shipments of goods from the Land of the Rising Sun to Russia using the sea link and the Trans-Siberian Railway were launched. According to Deputy Minister of Economic Development of Russia Sergei Gorkov, this is a significant event in the cross-year of Russia and Japan, as the project literally linked the two countries.
As the press service of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade informs, during the test transportation specialists will determine the level of vibration, temperature, humidity inside the containers. After the test traffic, the future fate of the project will largely depend on the interest of the Japanese side. Full-scale transportation of goods from Japan to Russia using the sea link and Transsib can begin as early as next year.
Now the parties will determine the list of cargoes that can be delivered over the Trans-Siberian Railway. Basically it will be cargoes that are afraid of humidity and are not suitable for transportation by sea, for example, products, agricultural goods. Negotiations of the parties will end at the end of the year, with 2019, active transport can begin.
