UTLC ERA celebrates the 1000th train on its transit services China-Europe-China

June 23, the 1000th train from the beginning of 2018, leaving from Chongqing for Duisburg along the transit corridor of JSC UTLC ERA arrived at the Dzerzhinsky-New station of the Kaliningrad railway.


According to the President of UTLC ERA Alexey Grom, the 1000th train becomes a key indicator characterizing the growth of traffic volumes and their geography. The development of a transit corridor for cargo flows in the China-Europe-China communication, passing through the border stations of the Kaliningrad railway, is one of the main tasks of UTLC ERA for 2018 and subsequent years.

«In 2016, we met «The 100th» in December in Dostyk, last year – in August in Brest. This year, the train number «1000» was processed in June at the border terminal of the Kaliningrad region. It is incredibly pleasant to see the concrete result of joint activities and build even more ambitious plans for future periods», – says Alexey Grom.

The 2018 anniversary train, consisting of forty-one 40-feet container transporting electronics cargo, covered a distance of 5430 km in less than 6 days.

Recall that on September 24, 2017, a joint project of UTLC ERA and the Kaliningrad railway to organize regular transit of container trains between China and Europe was presented.
