The Ministry of State Land, Transport, Infrastructure and Tourism of Japan found the transportation of goods through the Trans-Siberian Railway on the 30-50% faster than the sea. Also, as a result of the test shipment of goods along a new route, no damage was found to the goods. About it сообщает RIA News with reference to the representative office.

Japanese goods were delivered by sea to Vladivostok, and from there went to Europe by the Trans-Siberian Railway. Delivery time ranged from 15 to 31 of the day, while the carriage of goods by sea through the Suez Canal takes about 45 days. At the moment, 7 test shipments have been carried out. “The conclusion we can make is that the speed of delivery is a great advantage of this method of transportation,” said Re Kuvan, a representative of the Ministry of Transport, during his speech at the 5th Business Forum of the Coordinating Council on Transsiberian Transportation (CCTT).

The forum was organized by Russian Railways to familiarize Japanese partners with integrated solutions for the transportation of goods through the ports of the Far East and the Trans-Siberian Railway. As part of the event, the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Transport, State Land and Infrastructure of Japan, JSC Russian Railways and the Association of Transsiberian Intermodal Operators of Japan signed a memorandum of cooperation and understanding, and also discussed specific areas of cooperation.
