New container express
New container express: through Riga will pass 200 thousand containers!
In October 2017, the first container train arrived in Riga with a destination for Rotterdam, which, by 2020, must transport 200,000 containers from northwest China to Europe. The start of negotiations on the route was given during the “Expo-2017” in Astana, and the launch button for the departure of the first train was pressed by the President of Latvia Raymond Vejonis. Never before has such a volume of containers in the Riga port been serviced.
