The service is focused on ensuring cargo turnover between China and Russia at the new Kani-Kurgan customs crossing in the Amur region.

The service will reduce mileage across Russia by 1,500 km relative to the nearest railway formation points. trains in Vladivostok and Ussuriysk to the west without a significant increase in mileage in China. We hope for cooperation as cargo turnover increases and Russia’s foreign trade with Asia-Pacific countries develops,” noted Pavel Puzanov, Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Amur Region.
“Our task is to offer modern logistics infrastructure in the Amur region in the changed market conditions and provide foreign trade participants with the necessary service to conduct effective business with China. The launch of a multimodal service is the first step in the formation of regular routes with the TLT KANIKURGAN to central Russia,” noted Valeria Repkova, General Director of the Agency for the Development of Project Initiatives.
As Petr Saprykin, Deputy Head of the Trans-Baikal Railway for Territorial Administration, noted, the Russian Railways holding and the highway provide support for a new demanded offer in the transport market.
