Russia to deliver agricultural products from Azerbaijan by container train

A full-set container train from Azerbaijan to Russia will be made up of 41 containers, Alevtina Kirilova, head of the project office of Russian Railways Logistics JSC, told Qazet.az.

According to her, the delivery of agricultural products from Azerbaijan to Russia by container train will be established no earlier than the summer of 2022.

"All this time, there will be a phased study. These plans will be implemented after a test train, during which all shortcomings and errors will be identified and corrected."

Cargo transportation will be carried out once a week, Kirilova noted.

"The most important thing for both Azerbaijan and Russia to do - for us as a logistics operator - to consolidate the cargo base - this is the main criterion under which our logistics projects are built," the head of the project office of Russian Railways Logistics JSC said.

She also noted that a test train with four containers of persimmon will leave Azerbaijan for Russia at the end of this week.
