The first freight train departed from Vladivostok in September 2016. On 7 March Minsk will welcome the 25th. The total travel time is 9 to 10 days. The goods are transported in 20-foot and 40-foot containers that either go through customs clearance in Vladivostok port or move through the EEU territory in accordance with the customs transit procedure.

RUP Beltamozhservice’s major partner in this project is FESCO Transportation Group (Russia). The project also involves the Belarusian and Russian rail operators, RTUP Belintertrans and the Vladivostok port.
