Far East Land Bridge together with UTLC has the ambitious aim to establish a new service line: Weekly block-trains from Suzhou (Shanghai Area) to Batumi (South-East Europe). 
The main purpose is to open a new gate for a speed train service with 12 day transit time, serving from Batumi all surrounding countries: mainly Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia and others. 
The project is still at the stage of negotiations, but it is already clear that within the 3rd quarter of 2015 the first trail train will arrive in Batumi, furthermore planning to start with a regular service in September 2015. The reason why we have chosen Batumi as arrival terminal, is to keep flexibility and fast delivery to various destinations, offering many options for the last mile. The expected SOC rate level will be of around 6.400-6.700 USD per 40ft including our security service, covering the whole route through China, Russia, Azerbaijan and Georgia. 
Far East Land Bridge as a member of RZDL group is specialized in transporting 40ft DV, 40ft HC and 20ft containers from the Far East (China, South Korea and Japan) to Russia/Europe and vice versa using the Trans-Siberian railway connection. Our clients can gain significant financial advantages from the short transit time of 14-22 days (depending on volume and relation).
