TRANSITO TRANSPORTS FOR FOODSTUFF THROUGH RUSSIA PERMITTED FROM 1.7.2019

According to a news release published by the Russian Customs, agricultural products, raw materials and foodstuffs can be transported through Russia by road or rail as of 1 July 2019.

Auto and railroad transit of these goods is allowed in case of correspondence to traceability requirements (GLONASS seals).

“This is a significant new opportunity for container traffic between Kouvola and China. Existing operators have readiness to transport foodstuffs with special heat-regulated, so called reefer containers”, says Managing Director Martti Husu of Kouvola Innovation Oy.
