As part of the Moscow Container Express service, multimodal transport operator Ruscon organized the dispatch of the hundredth jubilee container train from the NUTEP terminal of the DeloPorts stevedore company from Novorossiysk, Russia, to Selyatino in the Moscow region.

In honour of this event, before the departure of the train, a festive ceremony was held, in which the management and employees of Ruscon, Maersk, DeloPorts and TransContainer took part. The attendees noted that the advantages of the Moscow Express service are fast delivery, more environmentally friendly than road transport and safe passage of goods.

Moscow Container Express replaces 4,000 trucks

Speaking at the ceremony, First Vice President of Ruscon Andrey Chernyshev stressed: “Since February 2020, over 4.4 thousand loaded containers have been transported by train on the Novorossiysk-Moscow route. It is not only tons of timely guaranteed cargo delivered. Thanks to this service, we were able to reduce the volume of road transportation and, as a result, reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emissions. According to a preliminary estimate of our specialists, during the operation of the Moscow Express, federal highways were cleared of more than 4 thousand trucks. For this reason, and because of the customers’ needs, we plan to expand the geography of such services and develop new destinations.”

The Moscow Express train departs weekly on this route. Maersk is Ruscon’s partner in this logistics project.
