Train preparing to cross Mongolia on weekly run from Asia to Europe PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 03 October 2008

Trains will run through Mongolia as they bring cargo from Asia to Europe and back again.

The Eurasian Landbridge train will be fully operational before the end of the year.

A trial run is underway now as shipments of computers are heading to Europe, having originated in China.

Published reports indicate that Fujitsu Siemens Computers chose rail because it is much cheaper than airfreight and quicker than the 30 to 35 days it takes to ship by sea. “Compared with airfreight, rail transport saves us roughly a quarter of the costs and also 95 percent of CO2 emissions,” said a Fujitsu official.

The Eurasian Landbridge train is scheduled to make weekly or twice-weekly runs from China through Mongolia, Russia, Belarus and Poland.
