On October 26, 2022, the first container train was dispatched on Xi'an – Duisburg direction according to the full-time schedule. The schedule was designed to synchronize the time of arrival, transshipment, switchover via division points and transportation along all sections of the railway with the 1435 mm gauge and the 1520 mm gauge.
The first container train within the framework of the implemented full-time schedule arrived at Belarusian Railway on November 2, 2022.
It took Belarusian Railway less than 9 hours to finish transshipping containers from a 1520mm gauge train to a 1435mm gauge train and get the train through customs control and other control procedures at the Belarusian-Polish border.
The train left the Brest-North station for Western Europe along a 1435mm gauge rail track on November 3, 2022.
Since the beginning of 2021, Belarusian Railway has transported more than 1,000,000 TEU containers in all types of directions. Container transportation reached the seven-digit mark in October, while in 2020 this figure was achieved for 12 months.
The results of the container business unit became possible due to planning and effective interaction of the Belarusian Railway with all business entities to increase the volume of cargo transportation in containers within the republic, as well as the growth of export and transit traffic.
For 9 months of 2021, the volume of transit container transportation increased by 1.4 times compared to the same period in 2020. A significant share of this volume is the result of work of Belarusian Railway with the railways of Russia and Kazakhstan within the framework of the joint project of JSC UTLC ERA.
