First container carrier from the Chinese city of Xian arrived at the port of Riga – Industries – Financenet


At the same time, it is also a 1000th container ship transmitted from Xian International Trade and Logistics Park, and the first train composition on the freight express train on the Minsk-Riga route.

The train was sent to Riga two months after China's LDz President Edvīns Bērziņš signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Xiang International Trade and Logistics Park. Continued road conveyances continue along the sea to the ports of Germany and Finland.

"After two days, Latvia will celebrate its centenary, and on this important anniversary we will give the state the first container train from the rapidly growing economy of Xi'an. Partners have valued our capabilities and capabilities that we have successfully justified, ensuring that through the territory of Latvia, the train is only expelled within 12 hours Thus, our joint project with the Belarusian railways – the freight express train Minsk-Riga, which has already proved its potential in the combined combined transport of goods – has been successfully tested also for long-distance container transportation and is ready to handle the growing flow of container traffic, "said Berzins.

The company also pointed out that the arrival of Xi'an train in Riga coincided with the moment when more than 260 containers from the port of Rotterdam were received at the port of Riga for shipment to China. Thus, for the first time in the territory of the port, there is a two-way freight train exchange, unloading of containers transported from China and simultaneously loading to China. These containers are also shipped to China using the Minsk-Riga express train route, the operator of which is LDz's subsidiary LDz Logistics, which has proven itself as an efficient, optimally planned route, allowing for a fast and maximally simple cargo handling process.

It has already been reported that Berzins signed a Strategic Cooperation Agreement with the International Trade and Logistics Park Administration at the beginning of September at the China Top500 Business Forum.

LDz is the publicly owned railway infrastructure manager and the managing company of LDz group. The group also includes six subsidiaries – SIA LatRailNet, which performs infrastructure charging and distribution of railway infrastructure capacity, SIA LDz Cargo, which provides rail freight and international passenger transportation, infrastructure construction and maintenance company SIA LDz infrastruktūra, rolling stock repair and maintenance company SIA LDz ritošā sastāva serviss, security company SIA LDZ apsardze, as well as logistics company SIA LDZ logistika.
