Quick inquiry

How now to deliver cargo from China to Russia and Belarus in the context of the introduction of restrictions by a number of European countries? Below are the main options, but the situation changes every day. To select the most suitable delivery option for your company from China, clarify prices and delivery times, fill out any form on the website or call us by phone numbers in the header. Our manager will advise you based on the available operational information, tell you the prices, the pros and cons of various ways of delivering goods.

Full container (FCL) options from February 2022:

  • Direct railway from China via Zabaikalsk/Dostyk through the Far East.
  • Through the Far East. By sea to Vladivostok/Nakhodka, then by rail to Moscow/Minsk/St.Petersburg/Yekaterinburg/Rostov.

Direct railway

Since February 2022, direct railway has become the most preferred option for the delivery of 40-foot containers to Belarus and Russia from China with non-hazardous and non-liquid cargo. There are options for double carload delivery of 20-foot containers.


Advantages of direct railway:

  • There are no risks of cargo delays or inspections due to the imposition of sanctions. The route runs only through the territory of China, Russia and the Republic of Belarus.
  • lower cost. As of March 16, 2022, it is 2000-3000 USD cheaper than the sea delivery option. Prices continue to drop.
  • Transit period is 16-25 days from the moment of departure of the container train. Since February 2022, the situation with train delays at stations has improved. There are practically no congestions at the stations. The total delivery time from the moment the goods are ready at the Sender to delivery to the Recipient's warehouse is 30-50 days.

Disadvantages of the direct railway delivery option:

  • Due to the absence of a sea bill of lading, the ownership of the cargo immediately passes to the Recipient. The senders at the same time require payment for the goods before they are sent. Note: since February 2022, this disadvantage has been minimized. Shippers have switched most of their customers to prepayment, shipping options by sea through European ports are blocked.
  • unpredictable transit times for 20-foot containers by carload.
  • the risk of customs inspections at the customs crossings of the Russian Federation. It entails additional costs and a delay in the delivery of goods for 20-60 days. To minimize the consequences, special attention should be paid to the correspondence of the actual weight and nomenclature of the cargo with the weight and nomenclature indicated in the accompanying documents.

Through the Far East

Delivery through the ports of Vladivostok has become a practically uncontested option for the transportation of 20-foot containers, as well as hazardous, veterinary and phytosanitary cargo. Can be used as an alternative to direct railway for the delivery of 40-foot containers with general cargo.



  • the possibility of transporting dangerous, veterinary and phytosanitary goods;
  • availability of end-to-end services from Shanghai and Qingdao with a transit period from the moment the ship leaves to the warehouse 40-45 days. Opportunities can be clarified with our managers by leaving a request or by calling;
  • no alternatives as of March 2022.


  • there may be long delays in the port of Vladivostok and the associated additional costs for storage and use of the container;
  • for goods going to Belarus, there is an increased risk of customs inspections. As a rule, this is weighing and scanning the container. This entails additional costs and increases the transit time.
