Russian Railways to organise trains to Vietnam

JSC RZD Logistics, a subsidiary of Russian Railways, said it will organise trains from Russia to Vietnam’s Yen Vien station through China.

In its press release, the company said the demand for rail transportation of exports from Russia to Vietnam has begun to increase since 2019, adding that rail service has further thrived with the cancellation of flights due to Covid-19.

The demand for the transportation of milk power and food expanded by four times as compared with the previous time, it noted.
