The timetable for January-March 2018 for the Kouvola-Xian-Kouvola container train have been published.
Departure from Kouvola, Finland:
Departure from Xian, China:
The total capacity of the train is altogether 41 x40’ containers, and the duration of the journey from Finland to China on this route is only 10-14 days. The trains and containers on the Kouvola-Xian route are owned by the Kazakh rail company KTZ. The operator’s aim is to begin regular weekly rail freight connections during the first quarter of 2018.
This new rail connection opens up new business possibilities for the Finnish exports and imports – and in future also to transit transportation, especially to the exports and imports of the other Nordic countries.
