Block Trains for Scrap Metal

  • TransContainer and Amurstal have concluded a Memorandum on cooperation in organizing regular block trains to transport scrap metal designated for recycling.

    The document was signed by Nikita Pushkarev, Director, Sales and Customer Service of TransContainer, and Anton Shulev, Deputy Managing Director, Logistics, of Amurstal, during the international transport and logistics exhibition TransRussian in Moscow.

    According to the agreement, TransContainer will provide end-to-end logistics services for transportation by block trains, including developing the route and providing its own containers and platforms.

    Trains will leave from the station of Chita-1 of the Zabaikalie Railway and Taltsy of the East Siberian Railway to the station of Komsomolsk-na-Amure of the Far Eastern Railway.

    Previously, Amurstal did use containers to have its cargo transported by rail, but those were single shipments. At present, the monthly traffic is estimated to make 600-800 containers.

    Using the block train technology will help cut the delivery time and reduce the pressure on the sorting stations in the process of transportation, Nikita Pushkarev noted.
