First container batch of Russian vegetable oil was sent to China through land border checkpoint




PJSC TransContainer affiliate with Delo Group performed the first shipment of vegetable oil in flexitank to China through land border checkpoint Zabaykalsk, informed the press-service of the company on September 15.

China used to import goods in flexitanks only by water transport as China Railways banned the acceptance of flexitanks coming through land border checkpoints.

“As a result of fruitful negotiations, China Railways and Russian Railways agreed to launch test shipments. 4 containers with vegetable oil packed in flexitanks were departed on August 27 from container terminal of PJSC TransContainer”, - was stated in the message.

The company supposes that the positive experience will set the stage for regular transportation.
