OPERATIONAL CHANGES IN KOUVOLA-XI’AN CONTAINER TRAIN TRAFFIC

Announcement 4th Dec 2017

UnyTrade Oy and Kouvola Cargo Handling Oy tighten their partnership. Mr. Jari Grönlund is no longer working for UnyTrade Oy and due to this Kouvola Cargo Handling takes a bigger role in handling the operative is-sues of the Kouvola-Xi’an container train route. Kouvola Cargo Handling Oy has a long experience in train traffic to/from Russia and CIS, which is a good background for taking care of the operational issues of the new traffic to/from China. UnyTrade Oy is still the official representative of KTZ Express (NC Kazakhstan Railways JSC) in Finland.

Next train departures
The last train from Kouvola to Xi’an leaves from Kouvola on 14 December 2017. The closing dates for this train: documents on 11 December 2017 and container delivery to depot on 12 December 2017. 

We will announce the 2018 departure dates by 15 December 2017. There will be two departures from both Kouvola and Xi’an every two weeks. 

Experiences after the first train
The first train left from Kouvola to Xi’an on 10 December 2017. The trans-it time was 15 days. The first train caused some extra attention at the border stations and therefore there was e.g. an extra 3-day-stop at the Finnish-Russian border. After that, the authorities have worked hard in order to allow a smooth journey for the next trains without any additional delays
