Alexander Misharin: Demand for transit container shipping on the route China - Europe - China has grown triple since 2014

"Over the past 3 years, the volume of transit container shipping from China to Europe and back has grown triple. The fastest growing volumes of transit traffic from Europe to China," said Alexander Misharin, General Director of High-Speed Rail Lines, at a working meeting with the presidential counselor Sergey Glazyev, dedicated to the transport interface between the Eurasian line of Russia and the PRC strategy on the Silk Road project.

At the meeting, the need for an accelerated modernization of the infrastructure for transit container transportations was pointed out. This is due, among other things, to the active development of e-commerce, which is growing at double-digit rates annually. Reducing the delivery time will significantly affect the increase in the volume of intransit shipment.

"About 70% of EU consumers are ready to wait for delivery of no more than 3-5 days," Misharin said. "Such terms will become available only if we build high-speed rail lines capable of handling container trains at a speed of more than 150 km / h."
