‘In September there were many important events in the company's activities. Together with our partners and clients we set a new record for the volume of transit traffic - almost 16.5 thousand TEU. This happened despite the difficulties associated with the temporary closure of a section of the Polish railway at the border with Brest. UTLC route through the Belarusian-Polish border "Kuznitsa-Bruzgi" was additionally developed. The first train in the Europe-China communication was sent through the Skandava-Zheleznodorozhniy border crossing of the Kaliningrad Railway. We expect together with our colleagues from neighboring countries to develop this transit route and make it one of the key routes in the development of Eurasian rail transport’, comments Alexey Grom, the president of JSC UTLC.
