This year the RCG was there together with its cooperation partner TransContainer. Among other things, RCG’s service portfolio, including all new connections (up to China), was introduced. In addition, together with TransContainer we presented our new cooperation and the advantages for our customers.
The cooperation between RCG and TransContainer is intended to strengthen rail transport between Europe and Asia and to provide customers with a shorter transport duration by means of integrated transport organised from one single source. We are thus taking a significant step towards intensifying freight traffic on the Silk Road route and are combining our expertise with Russia’s largest intermodal container transport and logistics provider.
“Transit transport between China and Europe is one of the fastest growing segments of the container market. We are convinced that the technologies and competencies of TransContainer on the broad gauge, combined with the know-how and capabilities of the Rail Cargo Group in European rail transport – especially in Central and South-eastern Europe – will create an additional impulse. This enables us to offer our customers a reliable and competitive service,” says Peter Baskakov, CEO of TrainsContainer.
Russia is an important market for the Rail Cargo Group and an important transport hub for Eurasia. “This year there were also many Chinese companies and customers,” says Tufan Khalaji, Managing Director of Rail Cargo Operator-Austria. “This has not been the case so far. You can see that the fair is clearly developing towards a customer fair and China is becoming an increasingly important market”.
We are proud to have been one of the few European companies at the TransRussia and that we were able to use our presence very successfully to promote and maintain our contacts.
